A sad day for the world













Early this morning, the U.N. negotiations came to an end. And while Australia, New Zealand, and many other nations were pushing for a moratorium on the unregulated high seas, in the end a moratorium was not included in the resolution to be passed by consensus. Sadly, a critical opportunity to effectively address the critical destruction of bottom-trawling was lost today. You can read a joint press release from Canadian environmental groups here:

Also, it has become abundantly clear that if the governments of the world are not going to take critical action to protect marine habitat, then it is up to the public to vote with their wallets and not buy fish that are caught in an unsustainable manner.
