More Disturbing Ocean News

I feel badly that most of the ocean news I post here is dire and catastrophic, but that's simply what is being reported in the news. Hopefully, I will find something positive to report soon, but today, the news is we're overfishing our oceans. Our oceans are in trouble!

Read the latest report, "Ocean Fisheries Maxed Out", here.
