Netflix documentary "Seaspiracy" a must watch !


Recommended Posts

If you have netflix there is an amazing documentary titled  Seaspiracy that offers an amazing insight into the fishing industry and they way we manage our oceans. 

 

After watching this, I am seriously considering never buying any seafood products in Supermarkets, but might consider buying locally caught seafood, if I were down near the coast.

 

One of the learning points, is that the sustainable source labels on products is mostly a marketing gimmick, with the organisations that provide licences unable to really verify that the seafood was actually sustainably caught.

George Monbiot is interviewed as part of the documentary.

 

What I had never really thought about, is just how powerful the interests in the fishing industry are. The money that is made from seafood industry is worth at least tens of billions, if not more.   One of the biggest investors in the Japanese Tuna fishing industry is one the largest Japanese vehicle manufacturers. And they were not really happy when approached for interview.

We could do with some help from you.
