We humans cannot survive on this planet without protecting our oceans. Seaspiracy brings it all to roost: the hypocrisy inherent within the war against plastic, the slavery and cruelty that plagues commercial fishing, the total decimation of all fish species and sea life from whales to turtles to coral reefs to anchovies, the pain that fish feel when being killed. From salmon farming in Scotland to the whale Grind in the Faroe Islands- it’s a harrowing and sobering journey across the world that makes it point over and over. Still, Tabrizi ends on a positive note: alternative seafood (he features plant-based shrimp pioneer New Wave Foods), something faithful readers of Green Queen may know a thing or two about. There’s hope out there. We just need to be willing to change.

Seaspiracy really changed my understanding of the threat faced by our Oceans. I hope it will be a wake-up call to those with the power the make a difference.

It shows how embedded some fisheries scientists have become in the industry they study. There's a real problem here, and I think it's time the profession started to acknowledge and address it, rather than reacting angrily when someone rocks the boat.

Watched yesterday. I know the topic, but I was surprised by some of the revelations. I have books by Sylvia Earle and Callum Roberts. I have worked at fish hatcheries. This film was an eye opener. This film is raising awareness in a way no one else has been able to. Ali really only did what was necessary for the information to be just alarming enough for everyone to actually listen. Obviously a very complex issue, hopefully to be worked on soon now that more people are aware of the problem. This movie is accurate, ocean fish farms are a mess. But I did notice that they didn't mention one more bad point about those fish farms....that domesticated fish escape and pollute the wild fish gene pool. I guess that in the overall scheme of things...that's small potatoes.

Seaspiricy was cherry-picked to be more provocative and to make for better television. Too few people care about the suffering of animals that aren’t human. Actually, a lot of people don’t care about the suffering of other humans, if they can’t be bothered to give a damn about another human why would they give a damn about a fish. So do stop trying to do the impossible and instead try to make it at least sustainable for the future. Maybe once we get that point people can go 100% towards not harming animals. Turning our backs on those who have already made so much progress would be unforgivable.
