It has nothing to do with sustainability of ecology, but profit. Look at their financial supporters in this scheme, like WalMart, Darden, etc, and it tells the tale. The US is one of the most highly regulated fisheries in the world, and has many stocks currently 'Underfished' due to the undie influence and big money from special interest eNGO's. Its also created the US worst fishery disastor in New England, yet EDF and a few other groups think its a sucess!

Fish that maybe considered trash fish. This gives the fish in the sea time to replenish. We know how to live with our environment, because we still live with our environment , which means we never stop understanding it. Money mongers are the problem. Until we stop throwing away so much food then I would believe overpopulation is a problem. During the rainy season the men flock to the rivers for some local fish that are in season.

Most second and third world diets are already mainly plant based. I grew up in area where the fishermen would go out to sea early morning maybe twice a week and catch enough fish to make around 300 dolllars(6/1 us dollar). They would not catch alot because the fish would spoil before they could sell it all. They all had small little pick up trucks with an ice box full of ice and their catch. One would drive the pickup and the other would be sitting in the back yelling his sale (carite $5 / lb, etc). We would have to stop the truck as they pass by if you wanted fish. Whatever is left over they would take to their family and friends. Not everyone wants to make big money. Anyway, all week we would eat veges. Fridays we ate fish. Saturday we would have chicken. Sunday, maybe a duck. It is still like that today even as the population has grown. Heaven forbid if one of those large boats with greedy fishermen ever arrive, it will be the beginning of the end of our community.

Very slick, blame on the locals. Millions of tons of food is thrown away each day in america alone, we have an obese problem, and yet we have the audacity to blame it on the poor. Shame, shame. I am all for sustainablity, but let be real about who we should manage and blame for the problem. I really don't believe those who are making these claims are unaware of this, thus I am sceptical.

More people have boats to go out and fish. It is not just the locals who are trying to feed anymore. These strangers want to make profits in top of it. So the fish in certain places that had a rich supply are depleting. More people have access to fishing now. More people have boats to go out and fish.
