  • Description
  • The film deals with the threat to the existence of marine mammals from pollution, fishermen and native hunters. Both sides of the debate are presented, from the perspective of the native hunters of the Arctic, to the anti-whaling protestors of USA. It shows how both threatened species and fishermen's livelihoods can be safeguarded, and emphasizes the need for better marine management of overfishing and procedures based on sustainable harvesting.
