Real & Meal at New Deal to View End of the Line July 19
July 4, 2010
On Monday evening July 19, Real and Meal Third Mondays at the New Deal Cafe (in Roosevelt Center, 113 Centerway Greenbelt MD) will show The End of the Line. The film, which premiered in 2009, is a major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans. Scientists predict that if we continue fishing as we are now, we will see the end of most seafood by 2048. In the film we see first hand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food. 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. The End of the Line points to solutions that are simple and doable, but political will and activism are crucial to solve this international problem. We need to control fishing by reducing the number of fishing boats across the world, protect large areas of the ocean through a network of marine reserves off limits to fishing, and educate consumers that they have a choice by purchasing fish from independently certified sustainable fisheries.
