By Emily Chan27 March 2021

The documentary film, produced by the same team as 2014’s Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret, reveals the hugely damaging impact of commercial fishing, here’s what you need to know.

For many, it was Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret – the 2014 film that pulled back the curtain on large-scale factory farming – that turned them off meat. Now, a new Netflix documentary from the same team, Seaspiracy, looks set to do the same for seafood.

Directed and narrated by British filmmaker Ali Tabrizi, the Netflix film takes us on a whistlestop tour of our oceans, shining a light on everything from how important sharks and dolphins are to our ecosystems, to the hugely damaging effects that commercial fishing has on our planet (considering that up to 85 per cent of the oxygen we breathe comes from our seas).

Here, six eye-opening lessons from Seaspiracy that may change the way you look at seafood forever.....

Humans are omnivores, not herbivores or carnivores, but a combination of both because the human body needs both.

That is why in The Law (Deuteronomy 14) you are told what you can eat and what you cannot eat.

Deuteronomy 14:9 These ye shall eat of all that [are] in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat:
14:10 And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it [is] unclean unto you.

What is killing the oceans is gluttony, which is why gluttony is a capital offence. Evil humans stuffing their faces and becoming fat, with many becoming obscenely obese, making themselves very unhealthy just as they are doing to the seas.

Deuteronomy 21:18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and [that], when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:
21:19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;
21:20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son [is] stubborn and rebellious [against God], he will not obey our voice; [he is] a glutton, and a drunkard.
21:21 And [if it be true] all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the "I AM" [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the perverse mouth, do I hate.

9:10 The fear of the "I AM" [is] the beginning of Wisdom: and the Knowledge of the holy [is] Understanding.

1 Timothy 3:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
3:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3:3 Forbidding to marry, [and commanding] to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know The Truth.
3:4 For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:

You were given God's Law to keep you healthy and and the environment pristine.

You break it at your own peril and destruction.

Sea of plastic: Mediterranean pollution under spotlight at conservation meet

https://www.rte.ie/news/world/2021/0908/1245317-mediterranean-pollution/

Plastic packaging and discarded fishing nets bob in the tranquil waters of the Mediterranean, signs of the pollution that has stirred strong feelings at the world conservation congress in the French port city Marseille this week.

"The Mediterranean is the most beautiful sea in the world... and one of the most polluted," said Danielle Milon, vice-president of the Calanques National Park on the edge of the city, where the International Union for Conservation of Nature is holding its congress.

"Turtles confuse the packaging with jellyfish and in some areas in the Mediterranean, 80% of turtles have ingested plastic," he said.

Meanwhile, nets can kill long after the fishing boats leaves them behind.

Research reveals how much plastic debris is currently floating in the Mediterranean Sea

A team of researchers have developed a model to track the pathways and fate of plastic debris from land-based sources in the Mediterranean Sea. They show that plastic debris can be observed across the Mediterranean, from beaches and surface waters to seafloors, and estimate that around 3,760 metric tons of plastics are currently floating in the Mediterranean.

The Mediterranean Sea is considered a hot spot for plastic pollution. This is likely due to its densely populated coastlines, fishing, shipping, tourism, and a limited outflow of surface water to the Atlantic. At the same time, the Mediterranean is rich in biodiversity, making it an area of concern for the conservation of marine ecosystems.

Sources of microplastics (such as wastewater treatment plants) were mainly found near metropolitan cities and heavily populated areas along French, Spanish, and Italian coasts.
