Empty Oceans, Empty Nets examines the full extent of the global fisheries crisis and the forces that continue to push many marine fish stocks toward commercial extinction.

The program also documents some of the most promising and innovative work being done to restore fisheries and protect essential fish habitat. New market initiatives are examined that give consumers a powerful vote in deciding how our oceans are fished.

Commentary is provided by fishermen and by many of the world's most respected marine and fisheries scientists. 15 minute version also available.
