Book description
Earth Report travels to over a dozen locations to report on the state of global fisheries. This first instalment delivers a story that should ring alarm bells throughout the world. Almost without exception, our fishing grounds are being recklessly exploited. Indian fishermen use nets with mesh so fine that even seawater only trickles out, and in the Mediterranean it may already be too late for the tuna. The catch is tailing off in most of the world's fishing grounds. If that were not bad enough, coastal fishing areas are under assault from land-based sources of pollution. This self-destructive approach is exemplified by a story from Bali - new hotels were made from local coral. When the coral went, so did the fish. When the tourists went snorkelling there were no longer any fish to see.
