Fish disappeared from oceans

Global marine fish stocks have almost given out. This has happened because of  constant overfishing and environmental degradation especially in places of spawning.

Although it is a big problem, it is not irreversible. World renowned scientists believe that its solution lies in the consolidation of fish farms and a temporary ban on any commercial fishing. Warships of developed countries patrol the world's oceans to prevent industrial-scale fishing.

People have witnessed the emergence of a series of "gaps" in the food chain, which has resulted in the rapid decline in the population of marine mammals and birds. Some of them are dying out, many are migrating to the Arctic and Antarctic regions, as well as in the equatorial regions, where they still can find food.

The illegal network of fish suppliers and fisheries is rapidly growing. The police and armed forces of seafaring nations are making concerted efforts to fight against poachers and illegal sellers.

Andrew Buckwell The prognosis on the dire state of world's common fisheries and the development of extensive marine aquaculture is undoubtedly true; however, I do not think there will be a cooperative security effort to protect the remainder of the stocks to enable them to recover. There is too much self-interest and free-riding at stake. 06 Feb 2019
pramit I agree with Andrew. All of these future predictions seem to be forced to end on some naively optimistic note. This is a remnant of an era where technology only improved people's lives and nothing else. This naive optimism and reliance on technology will lead to our downfall when we realize that technology can't make up for the faults of human psychology. 06 Feb 2019
Seth Payne Well, considering we already have very strict laws in place for protecting various species, especially endangered specials like the polar bears for example , then I see this as being a very real scenario. The U.S. Coast Guard already patrols native waters as well as international waters with this being in their top missions, so I see it being completely plausible for other countries to begin doing this also. What I do agree with on the above comment is that I do not know if technology by 2050 will be effective enough to actually make up/remedy such a dire problem as the Atlantic ocean being virtually wiped of its fish. If we CAN accomplish this by then, I would imagine it will still take an extremely long time before we get to a point where the world can say "yes, we finally replenished the ocean's population of fish." 06 Feb 2019
Filip Onescu I do not doubt that a lot of the species will die out, especially the ones affected by the depletion of natural fish resources. On the bright side, I do not think enforcement will be the only effort put into this, but hopefully also an effort to replenishment of ecosystems via fish/seafood farms. 06 Feb 2019
