Links For You (And For Me)

Before I forget, here are a few links I want to share.
The other night, we attended a screening of the Choose Wisely campaign video (produced by Nessrine Al-Zahlawi of EWS-WWF) at Mall of the Emirates. The very strong message this movie conveys is that the hammour fish, a popular local delicacy, is likely less than a couple of years away from a collapsed state of the species, after a very short period of overfishing. Click on "watch the campaign video" to see the short, seven minute video.
Then we were treated to a free showing of End of the Line, an optimistic but terrifying documentary about overfishing worldwide. The data presented in this film shows that we have maybe forty or fifty years until all the fish we eat is gone - just, gone - from the oceans. And most farmed fish is even worse for sustainability. Watch the trailer at the site, and watch the film to learn more.
