A new report from the Center for Biological Diversity is warning that the world’s oceans are not fully equipped to handle the growing demand for seafood from global fisheries.
In a recent press release, the organization said, “The ocean is becoming more crowded with a sea of plastic.
But that money has come with a catch: the oceans have a very low rate of recovery.””
The Center for Biodiversity has called for more than $4.3 trillion in investments in the marine environment since 1995.
But that money has come with a catch: the oceans have a very low rate of recovery.”
The oceans have no chance of surviving the global onslaught of marine animals that is rapidly eating away at marine ecosystems.
According to a recent report by the U.S. Geological Survey, fish stocks have plummeted by a quarter in the last decade.
And even the largest and most powerful fisheries can only produce a fraction of the fish they once did.
With an ocean filled with more plastic than ever before, the center believes that, unless governments and the private sector take action, the seas will never be able to recover.
“The oceans are dying.
That’s not a news story.
That is a fact,” said Shannon Martin, co-director of the Center.
“We need to think about the future of the oceans.
We need to know where our resources are going to go.”
A new report by scientists at the Center says the world needs to invest $4 billion in ocean conservation projects by 2020.
That would be enough to protect the oceans from the impacts of industrial fishing, the destruction of coral reefs, the pollution of the ocean and the loss of habitat for many marine species.
“There is a sea out there for us,” said Martin.
“It is so large that it is going to take a lot of money to protect it.
And so it is really important that we do everything we can to help.”
As part of the study, the Center analyzed the current status of marine ecosystems worldwide.
The results revealed that there are a number of areas that need to be protected, including coral reefs and reefs off the coasts of the United States, China, the Caribbean, Europe and Africa.
The report recommends that the United Nations and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) adopt a set of priorities for protecting the oceans, including prioritizing research, education and monitoring, better regulation of commercial fishing, and more effective fisheries management.
The organization said that the report is part of a larger effort by the Center to increase awareness of marine species, and to make them more visible.
“We are seeing a lot more of these marine animals being lost, and we need to help them recover,” said Scott Beyer, cofounder and executive director of the Ocean Conservancy.
“This report is a big step toward that.”
Beyer is also an attorney with the Center who works with the organization to help conserve species.
He said that he hopes that by creating awareness and educating the public, the world will be able for better decisions on fisheries management, and the ocean will be better protected.
“It is very important that the oceans are protected,” Beyer said.
“That is the ultimate goal.
The ocean is the lifeblood of our planet, and if we are going out of our way to protect our oceans, we are doing something really bad.”
