    If 90% of all mammals, including humans, were killed on the plains I would consider that area to be pretty damn close to dead.

    But it's not 90% of all of anything like that.

    Governments agree 20% hike in bluefin tuna catch
    Apparent recovery of Atlantic bluefin tuna stocks prompts decision by 48 countries to raise fishing quotas for species

    In 2013, the bluefin tuna spawning stock in the East Atlantic and Mediterranean reached 585,000 tonnes, nearly double the levels of the 1950s, according to an ICCAT estimate.

    The three most important tuna species in the world have improved significantly, according to the latest report by the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation(ISFF).

    In the report, which compiles the scientific records of the different major tuna stocks done by each of the Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs) into one document, ISFF announced that Eastern Atlantic bluefin tuna has improved for abundance while Western Atlantic bluefin and Indian Ocean albacore tuna varieties have improved for exploitation rate.

    However, SFF also explains that despite these improvements, there is continued evidence that overfishing is still occurring for several stocks, notably for Pacific bluefin tuna and for the Western and Central Pacific bigeye stock.

    Maybe you should read the entire article instead of just skimming.

    You realize this 90% figure is for ONE breed of fish that is a popular food, right?

    Those are fishing industry organizations. It's just like the tobacco industry quoting studies that they paid for saying that smoking is safe.

    You're smarter than this. Click your own links. Click the About Us sections. One of the sites has a banner ad for fish processing machinery. Do you really think the information on those sites are objective?

    So the fishing industry organizations want to kill the rest of the fish so they won't have anything to catch and sell anymore?

    LOL

    It's still ONE fish, not the entire ocean like you claimed.

    Wrong.

    Many marine scientists consider overfishing to be the greatest of these threats. The Census of Marine Life, a decade-long international survey of ocean life completed in 2010, estimated that 90% of the big fish had disappeared from the world's oceans, victims primarily of overfishing.

    It's one fish. You don't read your own links.

    Blue fin tuna.

    Do you read your own links? Click on them and see they're posted by a bunch of left wing environmental whackos.

    Only 10 percent of all large fish—both open ocean species including tuna, swordfish, marlin and the large groundfish such as cod, halibut, skates and flounder—are left in the sea, according to research published in today's issue of the scientific journal Nature.

    I'm bringing you links from CNN, National Geographic, Nature and you're providing links to pro fishing industry websites.

    You do realize fish die from diseases and other things that have nothing to do with fishing, right?

    When do the "Scientist" start advocating some thing that will work? Like a reduction in the top predator.
    Just whining about his effectiveness is not getting it done.
    These weenies are just passing gas and contributing to the problem.

    The quality of your links are not relevant to the factual content, are they?

    If you want a quality link, how about the New England Aquarium?

    http://www.neaq.org/conservation_an...-friendly_seafood/species/pacific_halibut.php

    Conservation Notes
    Some popular seafood species have a history of being managed ineffectively, which can often result in population declines that can take many years or decades to reverse. The Pacific halibut fishery, however, is managed in such a way as to maintain healthy populations and ensure the fishery does not negatively impact the ecosystem.
