2011 Global Fish Extinction Crisis


Thailand in ten years
total fish catch has halved

Hong Kong

Black Fin Tuna

13 of 17 global
world fish regions
in extinction crisis

Thailand Indonesia
North Sea Australia

Indonesia 56 million

native chosen fishing

method blown up dynamite

now fish genocide cyanide

symptoms eyes white
skin seared fish dead

industry fishing suicide
Indonesian fish genocide

global curbside ringside
stupidity fisheries riptide
resource fish stocks died

depleted shanghaied worldwide
welcome event horizon empty seas
