No more Fish in the Sea

3,500,000 3,500,000 NO MORE FISH IN THE SEA 3,000,000 3,000,000 People eat a lot of fish. n fact, per capita fish consumption has nearly doubled in the last 50 years. The probtem is that there may not be anymore fish if we keep catching and consuming them at this rate. To calculate how many fish are left in the ocean, the Food And Agriculture Organization of the United Nations measures how many of each species were caught each year. Assuming that 2,500,000 fisherman are catching as many fish as possible (and they usually are), the logic goes that fluxuations in the number of fish caught gives a fairly good indication of fluxuations in fish population.Here is a look at how some of our most 2,500,000 popular fish are doing. 2,000,000 2,000,000 ATLANTIC COD 1,500,000 1,500,000 1,000,000 1,000,000 YELLOWFIN TUNA 500,000 500,000 SWORDFISH 2007 2002 HADDOCK 1997 PATAGONIAN TOOTHFISH 1992 1987 1982 1977 1972 1967 1962 1957 1952 SPECIES / YEAR 1952 1957 1962 1967 1972 1977 1982 1987 1992 1997 2002 2007 ATLANTIC COD 2,467,216 2,545,954 3,013,837 3,201,009 2,727,559 2,271,320 2,254,716 2,070,596 1,185,017 1,375,079 903,211 774,188 YELLOWFIN TUNA 121,281 192,616 261,426 233,990 422,130 567,868 563,996 879,827 1,079,534 1,177,407 1,359,704 1,009,628 HADDOCK 344,755 530,688 547,494 485,670 552,866 404,303 423,103 397,894 207,815 334,105 270.299 339,230 PATAGONIAN TOOTHFISH* 1,178 1,153 8,641 39,836 30,175 42,076 24,726 SWORDFISH 17,561 19,138 30,889 34,419 26,569 31,280 40,322 64,949 83,037 99,212 109,707 109,271 * CHILEAN SEABASS SOURCE The Food And Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
