The article argues issues that were presented by the 82-minute documentary video "The End of the Line" about a global crisis that is threatening the total collapse of world fisheries. According to the author, the video was sponsored by four non-profit organisations and shows a production quality considerably greater than its understanding of fisheries. The author claims that overfishing does not lead to a severe collapse of stocks. He says that the film has no relevance to the condition of Australian fisheries.
