A journey to the end of the world, to discover the fastest growing food industry: fish farming.

Salmon, trout, sea bream, sea bass, and then environment, food security, colonization, land and water grabbing. Until the end of the World is a journey across three continents, following a journalistic investigation into the fish farming industry.

Aquaculture is the fastest growing food industry in the world, promising to be a sustainable solution to feed a growing global population that could reach 9.7 billion people in 2050.

The film, however, exposes a different reality: local communities in different regions are fighting against the expansion of fish farms, accused of polluting pristine waters, grabbing natural resources and even fostering hunger and food insecurity.

Director’s notes

The idea of ​​the documentary is to tell and connect the experience of different communities that independently, in different parts of the world, are fighting against the expansion of fish farming. From Italy, to Greece, from Spain to Senegal, up to the once pristine waters of Chilean Patagonia, the film exposes the conflicts for the resources that this industry produces, making huge profits while promoting itself as a sustainability champion.
