One thing that is the root of all the mess we all have created out of this planet is profit hunger. Its behind everything from polluting to overfishing and wars, and above all “not to give a damn” just continue as always. Is our brains so washed clean from original thoughts that we simply can’t do anything about the mess we`re in? Scientists now predict that if we continue fishing as we are now, we will see the end of most seafood by 2048. Oceans without fish. Imagine your meals without seafood. Imagine the global consequences. This is the future if we do not stop, think and act.
The End of the Line chronicles how demand for cod off the coast of Newfoundland in the early 1990s led to the decimation of the most abundant cod population in the world, how hi-tech fishing vessels leave no escape routes for fish populations and how farmed fish as a solution is a myth.
The film lays the responsibility squarely on consumers who innocently buy endangered fish, politicians who ignore the advice and pleas of scientists, fishermen who break quotas and fish illegally, and the global fishing industry that is slow to react to an impending disaster.
People who don’t dive have no idea how beautiful the underwater world is. The biodiversity is so immense and you see the most amazing creatures. What you can see under the water is art. Almost everywhere underwater photographer Dos Winkel dives he is faced with devastation. Taking a passive stance was not an option. He seizes every opportunity to use his photographs and tell the story of a world that is on the verge of vanishing. This is the future if we do not stop, think and act. To do that we need to break free of the materialistic madness they put us all in.
