Prince Charles Warns Of "Nightmare" Collapse In Fish Stocks

As we’ve previously stated in great detail, when it comes to the environment Prince Charles is pretty much on point. 

Most recently the Prince hosted a reception for the Marine Stewardship Council — an organization that works with fisheries, seafood companies, scientists, conservation groups and the public to promote the best environmental choice in seafood.

During the event, the Prince of Wales said:

“The science tells us very clearly that if we continue to fish without any care for the long term sustainability of fish stocks we will soon face a nightmare collapse in stocks and inevitable starvation amongst the world’s poorest people. So I think the debate about the marine environment is rather like that which surrounded climate change in the 1980s. Back then climate change was something about which a few people were trying very hard to make their voices heard, occasionally myself, but nobody wanted to listen. Over the years I’ve tried to make speeches and hold seminars and those things about the fishing problem, but again it has been very difficult to get the attention of all sorts of people, agencies, organizations and the consumer – the subject was quite literally out of sight and out of mind.”

While this might sound radical to some, I have a pretty good plan to end over fishing: stop eating fish. Yes, yes I know there are a lot of people out there who love their sushi, but taking a nice long break from seafood will give the ocean a chance to repopulate itself.  Plus, who needs all that mercury?! I’m just saying.
