We will never run out of fish.
Its the same with fresh water. For the cost of the Iraq war we could have built enough desalinization plants to give everyone in the country fresh
water. Not exactly but you get the point.
Actually clean fresh water is becoming harder to find, if we keep doing what we are doing we will run out of clean fresh water. Desalinization plants
are not very effective and cannot produce enough water for the world. It has been predicted that we will have water wars in the not too distant
Fish farms are not the best answer either, since most fish are carnivorous, fish farms pretty much take smaller fish with little or no market value
and feed that to the fish with market value. While there will always be fish in the ocean, the way we fish is not sustainable. Bluefin Tuna is one
popular fish that we may fish into extinction, just for an example. Many of the netting methods involve dragging large nets across the bottom
destroying the habitat and killing indiscriminately. It takes hundreds if not thousands of years for some of those habitats to recover from just 1
We've depleted the fish stocks around the world, and if we continue to fish the way we do then the fish will become so scarce that it simply won't
be affordable anymore.
I do have my commercial fishing license so I know this issue more intimately than most.
