For too long the sea has been seen as an in-exhausable resouce, simply there for the taking; this was true when the world's population was half what it is now (and the demand for food was much less). One way forward is to move away from the most popular types of fish and instead begin eating the less well known, but still delious, lesser known sorts. In England, where I live, cod and haddock were the mainstays, we are now (very gradually) moving over to pollock and mackerel. Given time these species will be exhausted too but if we (as a world) are going to support the ever growing numbers of human beings we must do something in the short term and then find something else for the longer term!
