The Fish Facade: Introduction

Coastal zones, as well as the high seas,
are under great stress from unsustainable practices, including
overharvesting of fishing grounds, bottom trawling, pollution
and dead zones, and infestation of invasive species—all fueled by
the massive desire to eat more fish. While global warming trends
are measurably affecting our oceans, it is the indiscriminate, un-
regulated overfishing of our seas that will have the most profound
and long-lasting effect on all of the complicated intertwining of
fragile ecosystems. More, soon to follow on this important topic, The Fish Facade.
