Interesting to see their take on the policies of certain governments when it comes to conservation , or rather, their disregard for it.
Some of the footage used in it looks fairly old and spliced together with modern data.
It seems more aimed at disuading people to eat fish rather than the mega fishing companies and governments that profit from overfishing.
Consumption was never the problem , profiteering and greed has depleted our seas and oceans.

I would say that something mentioned correctly as a major problem is government subsidies.
Without these the cost of fish would have reduced the consumption and brought some balance.
But there's no political will to take on the imagery of mass unemployment of fishermen in a country.
So subsidies keep increasing.
