Ted Danson narrates The End of the Line, which follows investigative reporter Charles Clover as he confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs, who exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans.

One of his allies is the former tuna farmer turned whistleblower Roberto Mielgo – on the trail of those destroying the world’s magnificent bluefin tuna population.

Filmed over two years across the world, from the Straits of Gibraltar to the coasts of Senegal and Alaska to the Tokyo fish market, featuring top scientists, indigenous fishermen and fisheries enforcement officials, The End of the Line is a global wake-up call.

“A powerful and troubling indictment of global fishing policies.”
The Telegraph

“Murray’s film is clear-sighted about the tough choices involved.”
The Guardian
