Our planet, Earth, remains largely unexplored despite being our home. With less than one-third of its surface as land and over two-thirds covered by water, our oceans are crucial ecosystems facing imminent collapse if we do not take action. Currently, the oceans are becoming increasingly depleted, posing one of the greatest threats in human history.

The alarming decline in marine life is evident, with approximately 90% of predatory fish and 80% of other commercial fish species already vanished. To address this crisis, a fundamental step is to stop consuming fish altogether.

For those who have not experienced it, the underwater world is a breathtaking sight, teeming with diverse and extraordinary creatures. Underwater photographer Dos Winkel frequently encounters devastation during his dives and refuses to remain passive. Through his photographs, he aims to shed light on the urgent plight of a disappearing world.

The possibility of empty oceans within 30 years is a grim reality for which humanity bears responsibility. Marine biologists Marianne van Mierlo and Barbara van Genne embark on a research mission to explore the dire state of our seas and oceans. Their findings, alongside a study by the University of British Columbia, reveal a stark decline in fish stocks over the past century.

Professor Daniel Pauly, a leading authority on global over-fishing, has long warned about its devastating effects. His extensive research has earned him recognition and honorary doctorates from universities worldwide. Yet, despite his efforts, fish populations continue to decline at an alarming rate.

As we confront the impending crisis facing our oceans, this documentary serves as a wake-up call, urging us to take urgent action to protect and preserve these vital ecosystems.
