Do you know where the fish on your plate comes from and how it was caught? What we do know is that fish populations are declining rapidly. The global demand for fish has led to overfishing, environmental devastation, and corruption.

Filmmaker and director Ali Tabrizi takes us on a journey of discovery in his documentary, Seaspiracy, highlighting how the global fishing industry can work out of sight, and out of mind. Through risky investigative filmmaking and enlightening interviews with a myriad of industry experts and representatives, Tabrizi brings the corruption, human rights abuses, and environmental impact of the fishing industry to light.
