Quotes

Matthew Moir - North Pacific Seafoods, Alaska: If you look at it from just a personal perspective, sometimes there's a personal sacrifice. But if you look at it from the big picture, you gotta take a cut in the harvest but you take that knowing that it gives you an opportunity to maybe have a better season two, three, four, five years from now. We just don't want to catch that fish this year, next year, we can't to catch it ten, fifteen, twenty years from now.

overfishing documentary
22 October 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Ted Danson narrates this documentary from Rupert Murray about declining fish stocks all over the world. It is based on journalist Charles Clover's investigative book. It starts with the crash of the northern cod. Then it examines various fish species and overfishing from around the world.

This has some eye-opening data and some shocking facts. It doesn't get very in-depth. It does take a vast subject and boil it down to an easily digestible hour and a half. For example, the crash of the northern cod doesn't dive into the international nature of the fishery. It's understandable to skim over the complexity of international fishing negotiations. This is a nice starter documentary especially for the uninformed.
