The Swordfish Hunters
Use this film to build your organization's environmental outreach -
to create lasting sea change before it's too late.
Our future depends on it.
(Recommended by the U N Atlas of the Oceans)
Based on personal experience, The Swordfish Hunters is an emotional snapshot of the fear, boredom and exhilaration of the hunt for giant fish over the deepest canyons of the North Atlantic. Interweaving biological descriptions of marine life, area history, colorful characters and nautical superstition, The Swordfish Hunters is an exciting ocean adventure.
The Swordfish Hunters is also a serious look at the the reasons we need to act- the young fish caught before they can reproduce, the tons of floating garbage, the thousands of dolphins, birds, turtles and non-targeted fish that die in the name of fishing - in short, our human impact on the ocean. Thomas Armbruster's voice for marine conservation highlights the terrible waste of by-catch, deadly plastic gyres, deeply polluted waters and declining fisheries. The raw imagery of this film will draw public attention to the plight of an endangered ocean.
There is hope. Embedding conservation messages throughout this adventure, the author inspires us by offering simple ways each of us can bring about sea change. Individual actions, no matter how small, will help to improve and protect a shattered marine ecosystem while there's still time.
