Viewers have been reacting to Netflix’s latest documentary Seaspiracy.

Directed by Ali Tabrizi, the hour and a half long film documents the hugely damaging impact of fishing on marine wildlife.

The official synopsis reads: “From the co-creator who brought you the groundbreaking documentary Cowspiracy comes Seaspiracy, a follow up that illuminates alarming – and not widely known – truths about the widespread environmental destruction to our oceans caused by human behaviour.”

“Filmmaker Ali Tabrizi initially set out to celebrate his beloved ocean, but instead found himself examining the harm that humans inflict upon the vulnerable seas.”

“From plastics and fishing gear polluting the waters, to the irreparable damage of bottom trawling and by-catch, to illegal fishing and devastating hunting practices, humanity is wreaking havoc on marine life and, by extension, the entire planet.”

“What Tabrizi ultimately uncovered not only challenges notions of sustainable fishing but will shock anyone who cares about the wonders of ocean life, as well as the future of the planet and our place on it.”

Taking to Twitter after watching the documentary, many have labelled the film “shocking” and “eye-opening”.

One viewer tweeted: “I cannot recommend this documentary enough. Just finished watching it, and I’m…just trying to process. If you’ve ever claimed to care about the environment or sustainability or even basic human rights…please, PLEASE watch this.”

Another wrote: “The best movie of 2021! I generally don’t recommend movies, but this one right here is a masterpiece! #Seaspiracy”
