5pm-6.30pm

Series: Green City Week

The End of the Line is a film based on the book by the same name by Charles Clover.  It examines the threatening extinction of the bluefin tuna, caused by increasing demands for sushi; the impact on populations, marine life and climate change resulting from an imbalance in marine populations; and the starvation and hunger in coastal populations, caused by possible extinction of fish in some waters, the possible loss of livelihoods as experienced in Newfoundland following the collapse of the cod population, along with the potential remedies.

Imagine an ocean without fish. Imagine your meals without seafood. Imagine the global consequences. This is the future if we do not stop, think and act.
In the film we see firsthand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food.

This event is open to students and staff of City University London and to the local community.  Registration required.
