End of the Line
Produced in 2009, the End of the Line was the world’s first major documentary about the devastating effect of overfishing, based on a book by Charles Clover. The film examines the threatening extinction of the bluefin tuna, caused by increasing demand for sushi, the impact of overfishing on marine life, starvation and hunger in coastal populations caused by the possible extinction of fish in some waters, and the loss of livelihoods in Newfoundland following the collapse of the cod fishery, along with the potential remedies.

Charles Clover Interview
In this Earth Focus interview, host Miles Benson talks with Charles Clover, author of “The End of the Line,” who exposes the destructive effects of industrialized fishing on the ocean’s ecosystem. According to his research, if current practices are not made more sustainable, the world’s fisheries could be depleted by the middle of the 21st Century.
