Did you know that as of the year 2000 the fisheries of the world now deplete the oceans of the world of fish stocks. I do not mean a few species, I mean we now take more than the world oceans produce each year. That is a fa nominal amount of fish, in the millions of tons. the method of catching fish has become so good that we are emptying whole oceans of life. Where, when, and how do we draw the line. Our earth will soon rid its self of the human virus if we do not change.

I really never eat fish, but I didn't know that. I just don't like the taste of them, I guess that's a good thing!

People are their own worst enemies because of greed and power. When it is out of control, then they will try to resolve the problem. For some reason, they refuse to plan ahead first.

The problem with the fish is not only the huge amount of fish captured, but also the expansion of fish farms around the coastlines, that help spreading disease from the farm-bred fish to the free fish, killing even more from the little amount left by fishing fleets. I for one have stopped eating ocean fish. I only eat freshwater fish from the places I know how they are breeding it.
