Sharks and whales aren't the only sea creatures being fished into extinction?the fish that much of the world relies on for food are going extinct as well. Part of the cause may be global warming, but most of it can be blamed on overfishing.
In BBC News, Richard Black writes, "There will be virtually nothing left to fish from the seas by the middle of the century if current trends continue, according to a major scientific study." He quotes researcher Steve Palumbi as saying, "Unless we fundamentally change the way we manage all the ocean species together, as working ecosystems, then this century is the last century of wild seafood."
