Where Did The Fish Go?

The End Of The Line

“The End of the Line” (2009), a new documentary, outlines the threat to the oceans, from overfishing.

It makes the case that if the fishing industry isn’t regulated, the world will run out of seafood, around 2048. This would starve 1.2 billion people for whom fish is a staple diet. Another shocking data: the global long-lining industry sets 1.4 billion hooks per year. Those lines can be wrapped around Earth 550 times.
