INVESTIGATING KEY STORIES
The seas surrounding Britain and Ireland are a fragile yet extraordinary underwater world teeming with a diverse array of plant and marine life but that includes over thirty critically endangered, threatened and vulnerable species. The angel shark has already been declared Extinct in the North Sea and is listed as Critically Endangered globally. How many more losses are we facing, in reality, over the coming decades from our UK seas? Our research aims to find out.
The common thread through all the investigations and issues facing our oceans is us – human/marine life conflict as we plunder this vast and extraordinary, yet vulnerable, underwater resource. From sheltered sea lochs to wild open waters, from seaweed beds to deepwater coral, these are ecosystems on the brink of breaking. Can we find the solutions to sustainable, and viable, co-existence with our seas and waterways? This hard-hitting documentary and in-depth research will investigate the answers to the most complex and controversial marine protection questions.
