Hawaii is ground zero in the global struggle to save marine wildlife. "Aquariums: The Dark Hobby" is an expose of the devastation to species and reefs caused by the aquarium trade. Some species have been driven to extinction by collectors, and others are severely diminished. 90% die within a year of capture, creating a demand for replacement. Aquariums: The Dark Hobby follows a band of Hawaiian Elders, conservationists, and scientists who stop at nothing to protect marine wildlife. They file a lawsuit against the State of Hawai'i to halt the collection of reef creatures, a fight that goes all the way to the Supreme Court.
