A few generations ago, edible aquatic life was thought limitless. Now there is general agreement that world fisheries are near exhaustion. Soaring world populations, effective technologies for mass harvesting large game fish, lack of foresight and changing dietary preferences in richer nations are among the causes.

Documentary filmmaker Rupert Murray, journalist Charles Clover and scientific experts sound a “convincing and emotive” (Village Voice) clarion call of alarm. Ted Danson narrates.
