Chance is always powerful. Let your hook always be cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be fish.
Ovid (43 BC – AD 17/18) poet
Only when the last tree has been cut down,
Only when the last river has been poisoned,
Only when the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
Cree Indian Prophecy
overall, humans have been poor stewards of the earth and of all the the beings that inhabit our beautiful blue planet. when it comes to fishing the waters of the earth, instead of exerting control we are exult greed and exploit many species of fish at the expense of the future of the world's fishes.
according to experts, many species of fish are near the point of extinction because of overfishing. humans don't have to be fishing failures and it does not have to be the end of the line for the world's fishes.
if you eat fish, always ask before you buy and eat only sustainable seafood. the monterey bay aquarium provides a fantastic series of regional pocket guides for north america that list which fish are the best choices to consume, what are 'good alternatives' and what fish to avoid. click here if you would like to access and print off these guides. for those who live in the u.k., the marine conservation society provides a similar resource that you can find here.
