2011 Global Fish Extinction Crisis - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

Thailand in ten years
total fish catch has halved

Hong Kong
fish extinction epic

Black Fin Tuna
black diamonds
overfishing illegal

13 of 17 global
world fish regions
in extinction crisis

Thailand Indonesia
North Sea Australia
impacts emptying seas

Indonesia 56 million
depend on fishing
native chosen fishing

method blown up dynamite
completely destroy coral
now fish genocide cyanide

symptoms eyes white
skin seared fish dead
in two or three days

coral dead from cyanide
industry fishing suicide
Indonesian fish genocide

global curbside ringside
stupidity fisheries riptide
resource fish stocks died

depleted shanghaied worldwide
welcome event horizon empty seas
