The makers of Cowspiracy are highlighting the dark secrets of the fishing industry in the new Netflix documentary Seaspiracy.

A new Netflix documentary, Seaspiracy, will aim to reveal the dark truth about the global fishing industry and the havoc it is wreaking on our planet.

The documentary comes from Kip Anderson, the maker of Cowspiracy and What the Health – two films that have encouraged many people to adopt a more plant-based diet.

While Cowspiracy informed viewers about the negative environmental impact of animal agriculture on land, Seaspiracy switches our focus to the fishing industry. Many people now know the negative consequences of farming animals for meat, but the impact of commercial fishing on our oceans and environment is shrouded in secrecy.

Therefore, Kip aims to uncover the secrets surrounding the fishing industry and reveal the “important missing piece of our planet’s environmental puzzle.”

The filmmaker has teamed up with a new pair of directors for Seaspiracy, Ali and Lucy Tabrizi, who also appear in the film capturing the journey of dark discovery.

‘We had no idea of the sheer scale’

Speaking about the film on Instagram, Ali Tabrizi revealed: “When we embarked on the journey to expose the leading threat to our seas, we had no idea of the sheer scale of what we were about to uncover.

“What made things even more shocking though, was the fact governments and environmental groups are complicit and profiting off its demise.”

Lucy Tabrizi added, “The rate of destruction in our oceans is outpacing our knowledge of its wonders.

“It’s crucial that we engage in this urgent conversation to protect the most incredible habitat on Earth before it’s too late… and this film will spark that.”

The fishing industry is secretly destroying our oceans at a rapid pace, and we hope that this groundbreaking new documentary will help people make the switch to plant-based seafood.

Seaspiracy will be released on Netflix on 24th March.
