The little-known Ross Sea of Antarctica is the most pristine stretch of ocean on Earth. Scientists describe it as our last “living laboratory” that can teach us about the workings of all marine ecosystems. As the film’s stunning cinematography suggests, it’s also a place of remote and wild beauty. But fishing vessels have begun to intrude here, targeting Antarctic Toothfish. THE LAST OCEAN joins the race to protect the Ross Sea, and raises the simple ethical question: must we fish Earth’s last untouched ocean? (FD)
