End of the Line, the world’s first major documentary about the devastating effect of overfishing, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival yesterday.

The End Of The Line - The Movie

The doco examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life, resulting in the huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation. The trailer below promises a riveting glimpse into the future of our oceans and what we can do now to address the problem.

The documentary team are also running a campaign where people can claim 2 hectares of ocean in return for a pledge of support: see the map of claims so far.
