U.N. Says Overfishing Could Wipe Out Oceans by 2050

The United Nations published a report today filled with disturbing news about the world’s fisheries:

On current trends, some researchers estimate that virtually all commercial fisheries will have collapsed by 2050 unless urgent action is taken to bring far more intelligent management to fisheries north and south.

The U.N. further asserts that the worldwide fishing fleet is currently capable of catching nearly two or three times as many fish as the oceans can sustainably produce. (Via the Guardian.) Link.
