About the Movie
The Ross Sea Antarctica is the most pristine stretch of ocean on Earth. Scientists describe it as our last 'living laboratory', a place that can teach us about the workings of all marine ecosystems. But the fishing industry recently found its way to the Ross Sea, targeting Antarctic toothfish and unless stopped, the natural balance of this unique ecosystem will be lost forever. 'The Last Ocean' tells the story of the race to protect Earth's last untouched ocean from our insatiable appetite for fish, and raises the simple ethical question: do we fish the last ocean or do we protect it?
Breathtaking visuals spur this intellectually satisfying investigation into the absurdities of fishing in the Ross Sea, Antarctica. Compelling viewing. Highly recommended.
Beautiful but heartbreaking, a call to action
This timely documentary explores the history and current status of the toothfishing industry in the Ross Sea, Antarctica. 4,000km south of New Zealand, this place has been identified as the most pristine bit of ocean left on the planet.
So toothfish are caught thousands of miles from anywhere and eventually sold as 'Chilean sea bass' in upmarket eateries throughout Asia, Europe, and North America. How was this allowed to happen?
International viewers might be shocked to learn the role of 'clean green New Zealand' in this shameful exploitation of a beautiful and priceless marine ecosystem.
Once we fish 'the Last Ocean', what is left, of the planet, and human dignity?? A thought-provoking film, don't miss it.
