Or at least not taking large quantities from the ocean.

My old teacher posted that on facebook - commented with "All the more reason to cut out fish from your diet - and all meat, for that matter, when we start talking about pollution."<br><br>
Now I wait for s*** to start.

Even when I did eat seafood it was a rare treat for me. I was always concerned about overfishing even as an omni.<br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

This is awful. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I really wish people cared more about the ocean.

Not only do people need to stop directly consuming fish (both wild and farmed - wild-caught fish is fed to farmed fish) but also other animals and their by-products since wild caught fish is also fed to farmed land animals like chickens and pigs.<br><br>
We also need to stop treating the ocean like some magical dumpster where things just disappear and everything is just fine again. That out of sight out of mind mentality is also what's destroying the ocean.

Haha, good!<br><br>
I made a similar comment in a few places too, it really surprises me that so few people are suggesting the INCREDIBLY OBVIOUS solution. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:">

It's odd to me how many people are aware of things like this, and still think it's a good idea to bring more kids into the world. I think things are going to be getting extraordinarily difficult in the lives of even first world babies who are born now. It doesn't seem very kind to bring more people into this reality.

You're just a child hater, like everyone else on VB. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><span style="font-size:small;">And I completely agree...</span>

I don't hate children, I must be the only one <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br>
I think it's possible the next generation could change some of the things on earth, and learn from our mistakes...

David Suzuki posted this on his website along with a list of ways people can help, and of course one of the suggestions was to drastically cut down on fish consumption.<br><br>
I look at the hundreds of comments and it doesn't seem to have gotten through to anyone that they can just stop eating fish. I even saw several people calling for a <i>worldwide one child policy</i> as a way to cut back on overfishing and give the oceans a chance to heal. Why dontcha just stop buying it?! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:"><br><br>
I guarantee these same people are happily chowing down on tuna sashimi even though tuna are almost extinct. It's like it doesn't occur to them that they are part of the problem, they just read about how humans are destroying the oceans and then go chomp on some more fish... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

Why are people so stupid?<br>
Is it so hard to do the logical thing?
