World’s Fisheries In Deep Crisis - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

April 2009 stocks
we already knew
world’s fisheries
were in deep crisis

do math shocking
more fishing boats
chase last shrinking
smaller fish stocks

half this world’s
fish caught fishing
we are throwing
back dead or is sales

sold no regard paid
to whether net fish
stock is endangered
or a species bycatch

38 million tonnes
of marine life taken
every year from seas
is not catch intended

target of fishing
vessels numbers
of most popular
species fall rapid
