The End of Fish

It seemed like not too long ago that bees were the canary in the coal mine (oh these metaphors will get even more mixed, you just wait). Now, as Mark Bittman writes in the NYT that canary is fish (I told you). That article contains this apocalyptic tidbit: 

"One study, in 2006, concluded that if current fishing practices continue, the world’s major commercial stocks will collapse by 2048."
