The End of the Line
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
As the world's demand for fish and other seafood increases and the technology available to commercial fisherman becomes more sophisticated, the annual harvest from global seaports has grown tremendously in recent years. However, the rise of industrialized fishing has not come without consequences, and many environmentalists and oceanographers believe that the current demand for fish and the methods used to fulfill it are taking an irreparable toll on the world's oceans, with some speculating that the seas could be literally fished-out by 2048 if current trends do not change.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This vital, if rhetorically clumsy, film by Rupert Murray subverts our ancient faith in the ocean as an inexhaustible resource.
Fresh: This passionate ecological documentary, The End of the Line, spells out the problem in clear, urgent, prosaic terms.
Fresh: The End of the Line is an apocalyptic documentary that is as beautiful as it is damning.
Fresh: If the tone is occasionally off-putting, the message -- at least, the facts about the fish -- is harder to shrug off.
Ignorance is NOT bliss
This is a great documentary which also offers solutions to the problem. Unlike other major problems of the world right now, this one is relatively easy to deal with. Highly recommended!
A Very Important Documentary
A greedy and unregulated fishing industry is setting up our global fisheries for collapse by 2048. This exceptionally well put together documentary not only explores the problems but closes on a positive note with win/win solutions and actions we can take that make a difference. Watch this movie and share it with everyone you know. Bravo!
Often we have to crack our heads what good gifts we would like to give our luv ones,
I believe this would be the best, great for many parties
