    What's a fish-lover to do? For starters, know where your fish comes from. Don't consume endangered species. After watching this film, you may never want to eat fish again. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    The movie does present solutions, including its urging of consumer demand for more accountability from restaurants and the building of marine reserves. show more
