Dying Seas

When I was growing up it was common to hear people say, In future, the endless bounty of the sea will feed earth’s teeming billions. You don’t hear than any more. You hear instead the 2000 study from the University of Dalhousie that 90% of the ocean’s large fish are gone. We overfished them. We starved them by overharvested the smaller fish they feed on. You hear that the cod still have not come back even with 25 years of moratorium.
