Seaspiracy highlights ethics of eating fish

Just caught up with this documentary from 2021 (available on Netflix) which highlights some of the truths about the environmental destruction to our oceans caused by human behavior. The film exposes the harm that humans inflict upon the seas and life within it, from plastics and fishing gear polluting the waters, to the destruction of seabed by bottom trawling, the huge numbers of marine animals caught as by-catch, the effects of illegal fishing and other harmful fishing practices, humanity is wreaking havoc on marine life and, by extension, the whole planet. The film challenges the notion of sustainable fishing, and highlights the impact of over fishing and exploitative practices on the world’s seas, and how this effects us all. Effectively another reason to make our diets more vegetarian.
