Overfishing - A Global disaster!
Worldwide, fishing fleets are two to three times as large as needed to take present day catches of fish and other marine species and as what our oceans can sustainably support. On a global scale we have enough fishing capacity to cover at least four Earth like planets...

The fisheries will recover far sooner than anyone thinks. This will, of course, happen after human population numbers collapse dramatically in most of our lifetimes. We have reached the brink and shall surely fall into the abyss.

Our oceans are becoming polluted and many of the animals are dying from ingesting -plastic,if only all countries that are surrounded by seas would make a combined effort to clean up the oceans and completly bann -plastic of all kinds, and stop dumping -everything and anything in the seas.

Bible prophesy predicts at the end of times, there will be no life in the oceans. We are close to fulfilling this prophesy.
