Seaspiracy: New Documentary About the Fishy Side of the Sea Food Industry

If you ever thought that eating more sea fish is much more sustainable than, let’s say, eating beef, then you ought to think again. If you ever want to know why, then watch Seaspiracy, a shockingly effective expose of the dark secrets of the fishing industry by Ali and Lucy Tabrizi.

A step in the right direction: A new initiative by a group of 41 nations is pushing to set a new target of protecting 30% of the ocean by 2030.

This “30 by 30" target could ban seafloor mining and remove fishing in reserves that can destroy habitats and release as much carbon dioxide as global aviation. These measures would remove pressures on biodiversity and promote ecological resilience.
