The film sheds light on the economic and social background of overfishing the seas as well as its catastrophic ecological consequences. In recent decades the combination of rising population in developing countries, the increasing popularity of seafood in western countries, and the development of high-tech methods for catching fish have brought countless species of fish close to extinction and destroyed the ecological balance of the oceans.
A discussion in German with Katharina Jantzen, Johann Heinrich von Thünen Institute / Institute of Sea Fisheries, will take place following the film.
The event is free and open to the public. Reservations can be made under 089/ 93 94 89 61. Please note that reservations are only valid until 19:50.
