BehindTheSTEAHM's De'Marcus Robinson, led a panel discussion based on the topics investigated in Netflix's new documentary, Seaspiracy. This 2021 documentary film focused on the environmental impact of fishing directed by and starring Ali Tabrizi. The film has garnered immediate attention in several countries and mixed reviews. Everyone can agree that there is much work to be done to protect our oceans and marine life. This diverse and intellectual panel discussed their perceptions on the issues with ocean and marine life conservation and how we can collaboratively work to tackle these problems.
