Drawing The Line is a revealing tale about Australia’s oceans and the men and women who depend upon it for their livelihood. The ocean is a ﬁckle mistress, friend one day foe the next, but the Australian Fishing Industry faces a threat that is far greater than any they immediately face at sea.
Australia is currently in the process of implementing the world’s largest marine reserves network, in doing so the Australian Government has turned its back on the science and an industry that is a world leader in responsible ﬁshing and environmental practices.
Drawing The Line is a warm, larger than life tale, of characters that are in a ﬁght for the survival of their rapidly contracting industry. A story of champions, working for the betterment of the environment and a country that may well turn its back on them.
Our goal is to change public perception of the Australian seafood industry. To bridge a gap between the ﬁshing industry and the customers who enjoy their seafood. The future of sustainable seafood food production will require the uniﬁed effort of the seafood industry, environmental groups and the consuming public. Credibility and trust will come from transparency and promotion of innovative developments within the industry. These stories are told within Drawing The Line and enable an audience to see the true faces behind the ﬁshing industry and the environmental values inherent in their plight.
