People are vowing to go vegan after watching Netflix's Seaspiracy documentary.
In case you've not seen it, the new documentary takes a deep dive into the fishing industry and commercial fishing.
An official synopsis for the film reads: "Passionate about ocean life, a filmmaker sets out to document the harm that humans do to marine species - and uncovers alarming global corruption."
And it seems as though it's made for uncomfortable viewing for some, with one social media user branding it 'horrifying' and deciding to completely cut fish out of their diet.
Just watched @seaspiracy on Netflix and MY GOD it's an eye opener. Thought I knew the extent of how bad the global fishing industry was on the environment and it turns out it's so much worse than you'd think.- Hazel Coleman (@hazelcoleman94) March 28, 2021

Others have now gone further and have sworn off eating any animal products at all.
Posting on Twitter, one person wrote: "Well I just watched Seaspiracy and I think this is finally the time I strive for a vegan diet permanently. This is going to be tough for me but I'm looking forward to the challenge."
Another wrote: "Seriously think I need to consider going fully vegetarian or vegan after watching Seaspiracy - watched it on Friday and been thinking about it all weekend."
A third person added: "Twenty minutes into watching Seaspiracy and I think I have to be vegan from now on."
Only 30 min into Seaspiracy and I want to be vegan. Damn.- Olivia Wilson (@owilson9) March 31, 2021
After watching #Cowspiracy and #Seaspiracy it leaves me no choice but to go vegan. It'll be a hard transition but worthwhile. pic.twitter.com/6E4aQp7Iuq- happylife (@happylife_twice) March 29, 2021
Someone else said: "My bf and I watched Seaspiracy last night. It made us both cry. If that's how bad the fishing industry is, I don't want to imagine the f***ing dairy industry.
"I'm already vegetarian but we both decided to go vegan. Can't justify eating animal products at all anymore."
In the documentary, Tabrizi says: "This film will radically transform the way we think and act on ocean conservation forever.
"It is time we focus our ecological and ethical concerns on our seas and its inhabitants.
"This is a new era for how we treat the most important habitat on earth."
