Seaspiracy; A Look Behind The (Net) Curtain!


Please don’t get chilled when you see the word: “Spiracy” up there. I haven’t put the “con.” before that but “Sea”!
Although, As if the meaning will be the same in the end. As we will learn more and more, slowly but surely, it seems that we are sawing the branch on which we sit!

In the last days of our trip, our son Raphael sent us a pic from reportage on Netflix with a note; “you might like to watch”. And we did it two days ago.

Popular Bio

It is a documentary made by Ali Tabrizi, a 27 Youngman from England (with Persian origin) who dared to create this stunning one and a half-hour film as a disclosure. (Additive: We can see hardly any intellectual one staying in Iran!)

If you have subscribed to Netflix, watch this well done and, at the same time, horrifying reportage. I mean “horrifying” only because of the bitter truth hidden before our eyes.

That is worth watching disclosure about something that rarely comes to the topic. It makes our eyes open and expands or broadens our thoughts.

I am almost sure that our adorable friends, Pam Lazos and Susan Scott, and others who have some activities to keep life safe on this planet, will be interested in watching it.

Seaspiracy is a 2021 documentary film about the environmental impact of fishing directed by and starring Ali Tabrizi, a British filmmaker. The film examines various human impacts on marine life and advocates for ending fish consumption. Wikipedia

I don’t want to say I hope you’ll enjoy it, but I hope you will watch it!

Today afternoon, we are invited to a small birthday party of our granddaughter, Mila (she became three years old last Thursday). I will go there and hug her and congratulate her anniversary, though, in the back of my mind, I wonder how her future will look like, and it worries me!

Have a lovely weekend, friends. πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ™

  1. Thank you for highlighting this important documentary to me Aladin, I’ll take a look at Netflix later. The trailer you’ve included looks interesting and I love the simplicity of advice given if we want to help the ocean … the best thing we can do is to, “Leave it alone!” Hope Mila’s 3rd birthday party goes well and you get lots of loving cuddles from her! Love and light, Deborah.

    • Agreed πŸ’―%! I think that is the only solution that humans just leave nature alone! But the problem is that the man always wants to make profits on everything! By the way, it was a very nice time with Mila and Co. πŸ˜‰ And you are highly appreciated, my lovely angel. Thank you πŸ™β€οΈ

    I don’t have a Netflix subscription, but I’m watching “Monarch Blueprints” on Nova ( using subtitles. What we’re doing to the ocean and to the environment is horrifying. Where the Monarchs migrate has been transformed from natural prairie to industrial farming with weed killers and other poisons. It’s heartbreaking to face what we’re doing to the Earth. I’ve also followed the horrors of commercial fishing and now the orcas are becoming extinct in areas where there were many because humans want all the salmon. Good for your son for alerting you to this video. The younger ones will inherit the mess we’ve made. Sigh…and thank you for sharing.

    • Then you almost know what is going on! It’s very sad to see and know this bitterness. Though, as you say, I can be happy that my son is aware of these all. Thank you, dearest Elaine, and take care of hopping for a better future.

  4. For many years, fishermen have caught the right amount of fish to survive. But then they got greedy, they wanted more, they started fishing more and more and more until they didn’t respect the rules of fish breeding. So the seas were over-exploited and didn’t have time to allow the fish to reproduce. So the fishermen have destroyed the sea (even throwing a lot of garbage into the sea) and now they cry because they no longer have fish and can no longer work. They are liars and have been selfish and greedy. I grew up in a seaside town, the fishermen didn’t give a damn about the periods of biological shutdown and went fishing anyway. They all wanted to get rich, what they caught was never enough. Their greed has ruined their families and ruined the sea. The fault lies with the fishermen themselves. Now they cry but it was they who caused many disasters in the sea.

  5. OMG, Aladin, my husband and I watched this movie a few months ago and we vowed to give up eating fish!! Now, sadly, we haven’t stuck to it (we’re weak!), but we were so disturbed by the movie, the overfishing, the lack of regard for nature in all her glory, that we couldn’t really think of what else to do. It’s sad and horrifying and makes me feel utterly helpless. Thank you for highlighting this important issue, my friend. xox

      • And there’s got to be more to do than not eating fish to solve this huge problem. I was heartened by the one scientist who said if we just left nature alone for a bit the fish will come back – I think they’re still plentiful around the Horn of Africa and some other places, but I thought she said countries were already moving in to harvest those little abundant stashes so it may be a matter of time before the fish 🐠 are only in the history books. πŸ“š How does one fight so many problems at once?! 😫😑
