The cod is gone

Soon the tuna will be gone, too. When are we going to learn?

It's been shown that if we could simply restrain ourselves fisheries can recover. It's also been shown that when fish are taken at a moderate level a fishery can be sustainable.

By the way, the sharks are going, too. Predator loss spells ecosystem disaster.

Just open a can of albacore tuna and compare to a few years ago to get a first-hand measure of tuna in trouble.
