Seaspiracy is the groundbreaking Netflix Original documentary film that seeks to expose the fishing industry’s impact on the world’s oceans. The director Ali Tabrizi serves as our guide and impassioned narrator, and he strives to frame each revelation as a voyager from Asia to Europe and back.
This documentary is coveted on TOP 10 Netflix trending, due to its controversy and drama. It could make you give up on your weekly sushi order.
The study begins with the numerous agents of marine life destruction, from million of sharks killed as incidental fishing. But also, million of dolphins are killed without any cause. On the other hand, an interviewee said that the killing of dolphins could increase the production of fish stocks for the market.
The documentary’s rhetorical style feels like a cheap imitation of investigative journalism. Seaspiracy ignores the real complexity of almost every issue presented, draws spurious links between things, and has questionable research ethics.
Seaspiracy serves with a sense of danger and urgency. Shark fin markets in China, Salmon farms in Scotland, and tuna ports in Japan are filmed by spy cameras. And efforts to investigate human rights abuses in the Thai fishing industry are charged with reminders of the risk to Tabrizi and his team’s lives.
What something important that the film highlight?
A devastating indictment of commercial fishing, this documentary is stunning, tragic, emotional, and honestly difficult to watch. In the fact, the movie more highlights overfishing as the biggest current threat to marine biodiversity than plastic waste.
I persuaded myself to become more environmentally aware through the video of a single turtle with a straw in its nose that went viral, I deplored excess of using plastic straws. Moreover, I also will go out of my way to not buy things wrapped in excessive plastic. Such as plastic cups, plastic bottles, coster plastic bags, and everything that packages in plastic.
But, the documentary explained plastic wastes does not the biggest one that devastates marine life. Fishing gear bump into overfishing is the one than plastic pollution. The narrator said he found plastic straws only accounted for 0.03% of plastic entering the ocean.
“Seaspiracy” does present some pieces of reporting — including an inquiry into dolphin-safe tuna can labels — that are surprising and memorable. But even the film’s notable points seem to emerge only briefly before sinking beneath the surface, lost in a sea of murky conspiratorial thinking.
