Sea of Shadows

Film + Talk

Besides cocaine, Mexican drug lords also trade in Totoaba fish. This is a multi-million dollar business, because this fish is a delicacy in China. Illegal fishing destroys the ecosystem in the Gulf of Mexico, so that the Vaquita whale, among others, is threatened with extinction. "Sea of Shadows" shows activists and naval personnel during the life-threatening investigations against the criminals.
