Event Description

The movie commences at 7:30pm; we’ll gather for food from 6:30pm onwards: dinner will be a pot-luck affair which means bring along some food to share. Please provide your own cutlery, plates, drinking vessels and serving implements.
The End of the Line is the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans.
In the film we see first hand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food.
It examines the imminent extinction of blue fin tuna, brought on by the increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation.
Filmed across the world – from the Straits of Gibraltar to the coasts of Senegal and Alaska to the Tokyo fish market – featuring top scientists, indigenous fishermen and fisheries enforcement officials, The End of the Line is a wake-up call to the world.
Charles Clover, the book's author, said: "We must stop thinking of our oceans as a food factory and realize that they thrive as a huge and complex marine environment.
"We must act now to protect the sea from rampant overfishing so that there will be fish in the sea for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren."
"Overfishing is the great environmental disaster that people haven't heard about," said producer George Duffield.
Classification: PG Duration: 85 mins

A tad far for us but it would be very interesting and probably disquieting. Intensive farming might be a solution of sorts but there are many down-sides to that not the least is the pollution of the surrounds with the fish crap. Then there's stress on the fish endlessly swimming in a circle. An alternative is aquaponics systems large and small which doesn't supply every needs but goes a distance towards that. Especially for villages and for non-coastal people like the folks in the Alice who have started backyard aquaponics.
