    90% of large fish in world's oceans are gone

    Oh man... we're doomed!

    The collapse of Atlantic cod stocks, far from being an unusual disaster, is typical of what's happening to large fish around the world, a major study has found.

    Industrial fishing has cut populations of large fish in the oceans to a mere 10 per cent of 1950 levels, says the study, published Wednesday in Nature magazine. The devastating decline affects open ocean species such as tuna, swordfish and marlin, and groundfish such as cod, halibut and flounder. "Our analysis suggests that the global ocean has lost more than 90 per cent of large predatory fishes," study authors Ransom Myers and Boris Worm of Dalhousie University say.

    Myers says the world is in "massive denial", spending its energy fighting over the few fish left instead of cutting harvests before it's too late.

    "We have to understand how close to extinction some of these populations really are," he said in an interview.

    "And we must act now before they reach the point of no return."

    "We are in massive denial and continue to bicker over the last shrinking numbers of survivors, employing satellites and sensors to catch the last fish left," Myers said.



    so in 50 years we cut the total population by %90. fucked!

    MEGALODON
    (meaning "Giant Tooth")

    There are a few scientists who estimate that it could have been up to 50 or 100 feet.

    Megalodon lived from roughly 25 to 1.6 million years ago, during the Miocene and Pliocene epochs. It is now extinct, but the exact time of its extinction is hotly debated.
