Dramatic title perhaps, but may be not quite so far-fetched. here in sunny sun dance, on of the questions that has been coming up repeatedly at showings of the end of te line movie is what about climate change? assuming rightly, that a warming planet will have implications for our fish populations too. well my practiced response to this before i got here was simply that the effects of climate change make all of he issues of rapacious overfishing all the more important. they make the need for precaution when it comes to fishing, and the need for fully protected areas essential.

exactly. fish populations can recover very quickly within marine reserves but at the moment the overfishing has led to major problems - the number of endangered species that are still being fished is enormous.
