Overview

The world is facing numerous environmental disasters, but overfishing is one that's relatively easy to solve. The End of the Line paints a clear picture of the overfishing crisis, why it happened, and the current situation, before explaining what we, as consumers and citizens, can do to rectify it.

Narrated by actor Ted Danson and directed by Rupert Murray, The End of the Line is based on Charles Clover's book by the same title. Clover was the environmental editor at the Daily Telegraph before setting up the Blue Marine Foundation, which campaigns for oceanic environmental protection measures.

Shot from areas across the world, and including interviews from experts, fishing industry workers, and affected locals, The End of the Line carries a message none of us can afford to ignore.

"Oceans, these huge resources once believed to be renewable… are not renewable anymore because of what we are doing to them. And so our entire philosophical approach has to change."
