Oceans of Nothing Page 26  TIME, November 13, 2006

“Oceans without fish are like cities without human beings!” A terrible thought hit me when I read your article on the study of seafood supply published in Science.

The conclusion of this study that fishermen will have nothing left to catch in about fifty years ahead is so stunning that some other scientists and industrial experts are critical and skeptical on that.

However, judging from the recent trend of climate change, pollution and overfishing, it is probable that the ocean ecosystem is deteriorating dramatically under the deep sea. Oceans are the very Mother Nature that directly link to human beings as the top of the pyramid in food chain. In that sense, we should not disregard the sincere warning from Canada.
