Netflix’s documentary Seaspiracy has shocked the public, and brought attention to the devastating environmental and social impacts of industrial overfishing. But it has also sparked controversy, and been accused of muddying the waters around the question ‘Is there such a thing as sustainable seafood?’. In this live podcast a panel of scientific experts from the University of Gothenburg and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden discuss the documentary, providing an informed commentary and more clarity on some of the critical issues that Seaspiracy has brought to the surface. This is a recording of a webinar from May 25 2021.
