I'm All Outta Fish

I'm All Outta Fish

Whether you're a lover of sushi or you prefer sashimi, this could be bad news for you. According to the World Wildlife Fund, we're running out of fish! In fact, they've suggested that, if current fishing trends don't change, we could be all out by 2048.

A Dicey And Pricey Situation

What this means is that most of the people reading this right now will still be alive when the fish runs out. Of course, well before that officially happens, the price of fish will skyrocket to the point where it's no longer affordable to the average person.

The WWF's warning draws upon a 2006 study in which it is suggested that many species will be driven to extinction if something doesn't change with fishing practices.

According to the WWF website, "The global fishing fleet is 2-3 times larger than what the oceans can sustainably support.

"In other words, people are taking far more fish out of the ocean than can be replaced by those remaining."

A more recent study by the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization paints a similarly gloomy picture. But what can be done about it? Of course, it has far more important implications than simply causing trouble for us sashimi and sushi lovers....



Buy Sustainable Fish

Buy Sustainable Fish

It's quite simple (well, it sounds like it is); officials the world over need to implement strategies which tackle the sources of the problem, like bad management, pirate fishers, and subsidies that don't protect the industry.

If not, beyond you not getting to enjoy your favorite raw fish, the implications could become dire and manifest in a host of different ways. Lots of people will lose their jobs, developing coastal nations will lose their main food source, and damaging marine ecosystems certainly doesn't help global warming.

Perhaps it's time we all start making sure our fish comes from sustainable sources...
