http://www.wri.org/biodiv/project_content_text.cfm?ContentID=4168 Fisheries Exhausted in a Single Generation "Over a billion people depend on fisheries around the world as their primary source of protein and livelihood." "This map of ocean fisheries shows in dark red those areas that reached their maximum catch, and when. Pink shows those areas where fish production has peaked and then began to decline. Our technology has become so advanced that we have been able to track fish in places we did not know they existed, harvest them to exhaustion, and then move on to new areas and new species. This animated map, based on the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, illustrates how, in a single generation, we have essentially exhausted the wealth of the seas. Our fisheries are no longer sustainable, they are in constant decline."
