Oceans and overfishing

I am really interested in the oceans and I'm just wondering if anyone would have any articles or websites that are good about overfishing and the ways we can over come it. Like different solutions such as aquaculture and laws. I know this is super random but I am just interested and would like to find some credible information about it all. So I figured a site dedicated to fish would be able to help me with this. Thanks!

From my understanding, fish just composes too much of the world's diet. It's one of the single most common protein sources and without major changes in the world's diet I honestly don't believe there's a whole lot that can be done to fix it except for aqua-culturing more fish.

Yeah the fish and wildlife site does have some good info. The problem with the web is there is so many not so reputable sites out there haha.
And it is becoming s problem with the fact that fish is so big to eat. Especially with it being healthier then say red meats b

It's a nasty problem... I read about it over a year ago. I am interested in this subject too. I do like fish, but I don't eat it that often.

Here is an article that I read last year:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/postev...e-end-of-fish/

It's interesting the contrast between the video and that article. I agree with the article that aquaculture needs to grow but also it needs to do so with sustainability. If they are just polluting like the video it doesn't really do us much good. It's like a catch 22 situation

the harvesting of krill for its oil is becoming more and more common, as people use them in trendy supplements. the scary part is that so many animals are dependent upon krill as a food source, that over harvesting could cause a collapse of animals above them in the food chain....it could be disastrous.
