I hope I live long enough to see our own extinction.

It was a very nicely produced video with effective messaging, but I think it's over stating the issue. Most fishing boats only go a couple hundred miles off shore and only fish a couple hundred feet deep at best. Yet, there's so much that we don't know about the oceans that we are discovering new species all the time. To say there will be no fish left is an exaggeration I think. Especially considering we use so little of the ocean.

Less people, less food needed. I think the solution is quite simple. It just needs the proper mindset that will eventually turn up once things get worse. They will, you count on that, just hope you won't be around the day that happens.

Asking the EU to do anything ABOUT anything is a total waste of time.

#2 thats not true. especially going deeper is even worse because the deeper you go the slower the fish grow. which means you'll be depleting these sources even quicker

#2 ??
say what again? yes we know little about the ocean, yes there are manny species outthere, BUT we eat a few select species such as the blue fin tuna, which is endangered, also hunting whales, sharks and dolphins affect their population, however people like you,which are ignorant, say ..well there's plenty fish in the sea, boats go only a few couple hundred miles offshore...yes they do BUT the targeted species swim in those waters, the fish have well established paths where they swim, mainly because of the ocean's currents.Before stating that this short video is over stating something you should consider to educate youreself on this matter.

#4 yes you are right, asking my country's representants is a waste of time, one of them is the daughter of the president...she is so dumb probably think tuna si a land creature...

if the solution to stoping over fishing is to ask politicians....well goodbye fishy ! you were tasy and profitable

Pretty soon when my friend gets dumped by another gf, I won't be able to tell him...well, you know, there are plenty of fish in the sea.

He'll respond...no there isn't! And be right.

#7 You are correct when you say that we eat a select few species and those species may in fact be being overfished, but that's not what the video said. The narrator said, "Soon there will be no fish left." I believe that was said twice.
This is just another video for another "cause" that overstates the "problem" so much for dramatic and emotional effect that when you realize you're being played, you lose interest.
If they were honest instead of emotional and dramatic I might be on their side. However, their exaggeration of the facts nullifies their point.

most likely we will start to like other type of fish
problem solved :D

but to look at if from another angle for fish protectors, lets say we cut down fishing by 80% would you be ready to pay 5 times current prices?, or you will raise another issue the politics are not helping you?

I guess that is a fair question, every one cries when Oil prices increases yet they say we should go for renewable energy which costs much more.

if people wanted help the nature they would have done but every single person of us a selfish creature who thinks he is not
