Over the past 2 decades, much of my work has focused on defending and populations that have been driven to the brink by exploitation. But the truth is, with 90% of the large fish already taken from the oceans in the past 50 years, with demand for seafood at and all time high, and with commercial fishing effort greater than ever before in history, no are safe from the nets, hooks and of the global fishing machine. I have always said, once the big fish, sharks and rays are largely exploited, they will take what is left - the and . Well that is already happening today, with the recent study from the Animal Welfare Institute (@) estimating that at least 100,000 small are each year (see first comment for more), putting many of these in serous jeopardy. Where do we draw the line? When has there been enough blood-shed, wanton destruction, , degradation of , and loss of before the global community finally wakes up to this hard fact - our reckless is our and we are the last to either turn it around, or stand by and watch it all slip away. I know my answer - and if each of us commits to a more responsible path, we can turn this around and create a brighter future…for us and for nature.
