Eating fish is great for you — but it's a different story for the poor fish. That's the semi-doomsday message from Rupert Murray's documentary call to action, which roams the globe to show how the overfishing of our oceans by greedy multinationals has endangered popular species like bluefin tuna, marlin, and Atlantic salmon.
So, we should farm fish instead? Sorry, the process of farming is often ruinous to the environment. Murray's film is based on the muckraking book by Charles Clover, who makes a fine on-camera probing journalist.
The only downer is the filmmakers' decision to try to hook audiences for their important polemic with slick, glib editing montages.
