The End of the Line

Release date: 12 June 2009 (United Kingdom)

Blatantly biased, sure, but The End of the Line makes for compelling viewing for all piscivores and ought to change your habits when buying or ordering seafood. Directed by Rupert Murray and based on Charles Clover’s novel of the same name, it traces our impact on the oceans of the world and how, if we continue our current ways, our children will live in a world completely void of fish by 2048. None. Gone. Finished. The message here is clear and succinct and supported by science and demands we each, individually, make a moral decision when sallying up to the fish counter at the grocers. While it’s a lot of doom and gloom, and while you’ll never look at the Mitsubishi Company with any degree of respect again, there is hope. The End of the Line does equip you to be a more knowledgeable piscivore by simply asking questions before you order or buy fish. I for one am hooked on the idea.

My rating 7 out of 10.
