The End of the Line is a documentary film narrated by Rupert Murray. In the film, he offers in-depth analysis of the crisis in oceans around the world as experts give their view on the primary factors that have led to the looming shortage of fish and other seafood, arising from irresponsible fishing behaviors and increased demand for endangered fish species. The film aims to portray the devastating effects of over-fishing to the world's population of fish. As the demand for fish and other seafood increases worldwide, and commercial fishing technology becomes more and more refined, there has been a tremendous increase in annual harvest from global seaports. Many oceanographers and environmentalists are of the view that the rise of industrialized fishing is imparting a permanent and irreparable toll on the world's water bodies with some predicting that failure to change current trends by 2048, could lead to total depletion of fish and other seafood. The film acts as a wake up call to all those concerned to take action and end the looming danger affecting these endangered species.moreless
