"The world's oceans will be empty of fish" by 2048

Last year, Pound360 mentioned a study (referenced by the NY Times) that predicted commercial fish stocks would be wiped out by 2048 thanks to overfishing.

But it's worse than that. It actually predicts "the world's oceans will be empty of fish… due to overfishing, pollution, habitat loss, and climate change." (
CBS News)

The study was lead by the University of Halifax, Nova Scotia and included scientists from the US, UK, Sweden and Panama.

About Me

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
