Just how badly are we overfishing the oceans? This question is not easily answered. The pessimistic view indicates that many commercial ocean fish stocks were on pace to collapse by mid-century. Such a view has been supported by studies like those published in Science in 2006. However, other experts indicate that this view is far too alarmist; that fish stocks are being restocked all over the world from the US to Iceland to New Zealand. The debate continues as it is difficult (and expensive) to get a precise read on the state of the world's marine fisheries. The question remains: Are the success stories of reviving fish stocks exceptions rather than the rule? Does anyone else have further insights?
