I was reading the news and stumbled across this new story and thought it was particularly interesting.

Apparently the human race can't do anything to this plant that doesn't involve harming it some how. Somehow as a species we need to figure out how to live in harmony with the earth instead of destorying it.


The article, published in the scientific journal Marine Policy, describes fishing operations that have in recent decades targeted the unregulated high seas after stocks near shore were overfished.

Describing the open ocean as "more akin to a watery desert," the scientists argue that vessels have targeted patches of productive areas sequentially, depleting the fish there and destroying deep-sea corals before moving on to new areas.

Certain deep-sea species have gained widespread popularity - including orange roughy and Patagonian toothfish, otherwise known as Chilean sea bass - only to crash within a matter of years.

Elliott Norse, president of the Marine Conservation Institute and the paper’s lead author, said the world has turned to deep-sea fishing "out of desperation" without realizing fish stocks there take much longer to recover.

No fishes no us. Hunting a species to extinction is not good for the ecosystem. Take away parts of the food chain and the chain will collapse. To quote Spock "To hunt a species to extinction is illogical."
