Around 90-100 million tons of fish are pulled from the oceans each year. The 2013 State of the Ocean Report from the IPSO stated, “Not only are we already experiencing severe declines in many species, to the point of commercial extinction in some cases, and an unparalleled rate of regional extinctions of habitat types … we now face losing marine species and entire marine ecosystems, such as coral reefs, within a single generation. Unless action is taken now, the consequences of our activities are at a high risk of causing – through the combined effects of climate change, overexploitation, pollution and habitat loss – the next globally significant extinction event in the ocean.”
If the oceans die, we all die.
Don’t continue participating in the exploitation of animals and the earth. Go vegan.
