No more seafood?
A widely publicized article recently came out in Science that predicts the collapse of seafood by the year 2048. I hope people see this not as a sign to give up on ocean conservation but rather as a call to step up efforts and to protect biodiversity. Unlike most of the media, the authors went out of their way to insist that with modifications to the way we currently use the ocean, these trends are reversible, and to highlight the importance of preserving biodiversity, the real take away point of the paper.
