Global Fish Crisis

UN experts predict that fish will disappear from oceans worldwide by 2050 unless fish farming ends.

If large-scale fish farming continues at its current rate, fish will entirely disappear from the world's oceans by 2050, according to a report released on Monday by UN officials. The UN Environment Program is currently working on a Green Economy study due in late 2010 that will outline ways to avoid wiping out fish populations worldwide, including slashing fishing fleet subsidies and creating protected zones for fish. In March, a proposed worldwide ban on farming bluefin tuna was shot down at an endangered species conference in Doha, Qatar, after influential Japanese lobbyists rejected the proposal as a solution to the dwindling fish population.
