As American real-life tv shows about tuna fishers are rising in popularity, the fishing industry in the Mediterranean Sea has been under exposed. Yet, these South European waters are filled with danger for the Atlantic bluefin tuna; overfishing and illegal fishing activities have had serious consequences for the bluefin tuna population. The increasing demand for tuna has led to a worldwide decline of the species and their numbers are still dropping rapidly. This profound documentary reveals an ongoing tug-of-war between local fishermen, environmentalists, fish farmers and scientists. Is there a way to put a halt to overfishing and to rescue the bluefin tuna from extinction?
