Local fishermen in the Maldives have been fishing here since they were children. This film transports us to the thriving marine ecosystems of the Maldives with their giant clams, rays, sea turtles, jellyfish, octopuses, colorful coral and tropical fish. What will come of this cornucopia of life in the future? This documentary unveils the plight of fishing in the Maldives if such practices as purse seine fishing of tuna outside of Maldivian waters and similar devastating practices continue.
