About the documentary:
The Dark Hobby
All The Pretty Fishes and The Price Paid to Tank Them
In the spirit of The Cove and Blackfish, The Dark Hobby follows Hawaiʻian Elders, conservationists, and scientists who stop at nothing to protect reef wildlife all the way to the Supreme Court. It is an expose of the aquarium trade’s predatory practices that generate billions of dollars. Hawaiʻi is ground zero in the global struggle to save marine wildlife. Scientific research shows fish feel pain, recognize human faces, and sing. »
