Have you watched Seaspiracy The Netflix Documentary? If you haven’t, then do! It’s crucial to protect our whales, sharks and dolphins. Please watch it and stop eating fish. Let’s do better! If our oceans die, we all die. Continue reading to know more about our vegan fish alternatives.
British director Ali Tabrizi’s new documentary Seaspiracy – available on Netflix – investigates the harm that humans do to marine species in our oceans around the world.
The documentary tries to unravel the impact of human activities on the health of the oceans and shows a bleak diagnosis of its causes, with complaints to organizations regarding the lack of control that there is on the fishing industries that operate on the high seas.
In one week, Seaspiracy climbed to the No.1 spot for Film in the UK, Ireland, Hong Kong, Croatia, Estonia, Malta, Singapore, Switzerland, and in the Top 10 in over 40 countries!
Seaspiracy shows people that if they care about the fate of the ocean and all the sentient beings who live there, they have to stop eating fish.
Cowspiracy helped change how we think and act on animal agriculture forever, and now it’s Seaspiracy’s turn to do the same for ocean conservation.
Plastic straws only account for 0.03% of ocean plastics. Fishing nets account for 46%, but you don’t hear that on the news.
The meat and seafood industries are not only cruel, but they’re also incredibly wasteful. The shelf life of fish is extremely short. As a result, a lot of it gets thrown away. More than 25% of all US retail meat gets discarded by stores or customers. This adds up to 14 billion animals per year who are killed and thrown away. By going plant-based, you will be helping to stop this massive amount of eco-destruction, cruelty and wastefulness.
We must do all we can to protect our oceans. Not only they are full of rare and wonderful wildlife, but these healthy ecosystems help support our planet.
The oceans are home to up to 80% of all life on Earth, producing 50-80% of the oxygen on Earth and absorbing four times the amount of CO2 as the Amazon Rainforest.
“If we wipe out the fish, the oceans are going to die. If the oceans die, we die.” ~ Paul Watson
If you’re going to watch one documentary, Seaspiracy is the one to watch! This film is beyond thought-provoking. It will make you question everything you thought you knew about the fishing industry.
This film explores some routine practices occurring around the world that ought to make you reconsider your choice to consume seafood. For your health, choose plant-based. The place for sealife is in the sea. Leave them in the sea.
