Incompetence Sentences Our Seas


WWF global fisheries analysis report
data to 2009 study shows at least
40 per cent of the entire world’s catch
is invisible to fish sea management

calculate combined global fishing effort
the number of vessels and the amount
of time spent at sea continues to increase
but catches remain static decrease exit

more boats chase fewer fish to extinction point
world’s fish stocks are in crisis total 80 per cent
of world’s fisheries fully exploited over exploited
immature fish unregulated are unbred fast caught

Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
