If you think that eating seafood is more sustainable than eating land animals, think again. This short web documentary explains how WE are currently experiencing a global fisheries crisis. The problem isn’t just with how seafood is caught and processed — marine ecosystems have been destroyed, fish farms continue to wreak havoc on OUR oceans, poor fishermen are still poor, the third world’s food is feeding the first world, and Big Fish is reaping all the benefits. Further evidence that OUR food choices clearly impact the world around US.
Something I learned yesterday…
The Philippines, Indonesia, Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, Australia, Fiji, Maldives, and Palau supplied more than 98% of the total number of fish globally exported between 1997 to 2002.
75% of ocean fisheries are either at their limits or overfished.
