Seaspiracy 2021 is a documentary about the environmental impact of fishing directed and starring British film producer Ali Tabrizi. The film was produced by Kip Anderson, director of the plant-based diet documentaries “Cowspiracy” and “What the Health”.
The film premiered on Netflix in March 2021 and attracted attention in many countries. The film was praised for drawing people’s attention to the subject and aroused controversy regarding its scientific accuracy and neutrality. Some organizations and individuals interviewed or negatively described in the film raised objections to the film’s claims and accused the film of misrepresenting them.
The feature of this movie is the human impact on marine life, such as plastic marine trash, ghost nets and overfishing around the world. It believes that commercial fisheries are the main driving force for the destruction of marine ecosystems. Seaspiracy rejected the concept of sustainable fishing and criticized several marine conservation organizations, including the Earth Island Institute and its dolphin safety label, and the Marine Stewardship Council’s sustainable seafood certification. It also criticized the organization’s efforts to reduce household plastics considering the influence of ghost nets. It accused these measures of covering up the environmental impact of fishing on fisheries and corruption in fisheries.
This film promotes marine protected areas and eliminates fish consumption. The documentary also covers Tai Chi dolphin hunting, whaling in the Faroe Islands, and modern slavery in the Thai fishing industry.
The movie will be released on Netflix on March 24, 2021.
A filmmaker with a passion for marine life sets out to document the human harm to marine species-and discovers the shocking phenomenon of global corruption.
