BLUE FIN: The Last of the Giants
Wed., February 13, 2019
7:00 - 8:00 PM

BLUE FIN is a tale of epic stakes set in "the tuna capital of the world," North Lake, Prince Edward Island. The film explores the baffling mystery of why the normally wary bluefin tuna no longer fear humans. Local fishermen swear tuna are so starving and abundant now that they will literally eat out of people's hands.

But something is not right. Have these "endangered" tuna stocks suddenly recovered, as the fishermen claim? Or are we actually hunting down the last of them, like the buffalo — as scientists claim? One thing is certain: this sudden and incredible abundance of tuna off their shores flies in the face of scientific assessments claiming endangered stocks are down by 90%. 

At the heart of this documentary lies a passionate concern by all about the fate of the giant bluefin tuna. Isn't it time we learned to appreciate the giant (and relentlessly hunted) bluefin tuna as extraordinary "wildlife," in the same way we love whales, dolphins and panda bears?

 


"BLUE FIN brings into stark and stunning focus the sharply differing perspectives of those involved in the pursuit and protection of one of the greatest creatures in the sea."
