FISHLESS OCEANS?

ADVOCATE

In 2006, Worm et al in their research article Impacts of Biodiversity Loss on Ocean Ecosystem Services, they predicted that oceans will be fishless by 2048. Although this claim has been refuted by other studies, we shouldn’t take it lightly. If anything, we should take it as a hint not to further damage the oceans. In an interview with Green Queen HK, Watson said, “The predictions differ, with some saying that the ocean Fish stocks will be diminished by 88%, which is still pretty close to 100%. It doesn’t really matter whether it’s 2048 or 2078. The point is, it’s going to crash and there is no sustainable commercial fishing anywhere in the world.”
