Seaspiracy was released on Netflix last week and it was disappointing at best. It tried to "enlighten" viewers about overfishing with a simple question: "Can Fishing Ever Be Sustainable?" and it got the answer wrong because fishing is a complex issue in the Ocean.
Lack of research and misleading interviews threw a number of great organizations under the bus and touted an organization notorious for using violence to get their results.
I provide my review of this documentary in this episode.

There was a great write up on Medium.com about how nature documentaries may focus too much on the beautiful nature and not enough on the behavior change that is necessary to solve the issues facing nature.
