Teresa, a young fisheries observer, disappears ominously from a Spanish fishing vessel. Ragna and her group of radical activists are applying doubtful methods to save the oceans from collapse, while cases of fish poisonings are increasing all over Europe.
Three men are desperately looking for two women in danger of death – right in between a brutal fishing industry, an apathetic public and a paralyzed political apparatus: Wolfram Fleischhauer’s eco-thriller “Das Meer” creates a terrifying realistic scenario and tells a story about the borders of love and our longing for a different relationship with nature.
Together with colleagues from the Deutsche Umwelthilfe and the author, Wolfram Fleischhauer, FishAct organized a public reading in Hamburg on the 15.08.2019. During the event the author read from his book and afterwards a panel discussion on the issues of illegal fishing, human rights violations at sea and important measures was taking place.
“This novel is the perfect medium to transport a very complex and difficult issue to a broad audience, which otherwise would never get in contact with it. It is very well researched and the reader gets many facts, wrapped in an thrilling story. Books like “Das Meer” help us to get the issue of overfishing and illegal fishing high on the agenda of many people.” Valeska Diemel, Director of FishAct
