Well humans are the stewards of the Earth and some do a great job and others fail miserably. It is up to us to call them out when they fail to be good stewards. And similarly we should commend the efforts of people who are working to save this beautiful Earth for future generations.

Well, the monetarists wanted consumers, now we have consumers. Retarded consumers who don't even realize they are literally destroying their own future. I guess the resulting starvation will please the monetarists who want to kill off most humans around the world. However, there won't be anything left to consume in that bleak future. Sadly, the growing consumer demand in China will probably wipe out millions more species than we already losing :(

I am in the hobby of reef keeping, yes fish are getting fished out but they are being placed in aquariums where there chance of survival is much higher than in the wild. as to the amount being eaten, i think its quite sad. As i said I am in the reef keeping hobby and have noticed a large increase in aquacultured fish and corals, I hope this habbit gets involved with fish we eat.
vagusnerve89 - 8 years ago
hahahaah and Western countries do? We generally don't practice what we preach. One segment of our society studies and urges conservation, the other: Toxic waste dumping, insistence on anti environmentalism because its inconvenient or costs too much money, Oil spills the size of small countries, Fracking for oil and natural gas, deforestation because we want the land for our ever growing populace, farming runoff that causes a coastal deadzone seasonally, etc. Its easy to make generalizations

You state that the chinese "live in poverty so are forced to eat everything they can find" to support your claims. That's utterly ridiculous. These fishermen travel hundreds of pointless miles to find inhabited coral reefs, just to get profit. Chinese individuals find these fish "delicacies" and will pay so much more for this than for a farm-raised one. THIS is ignorance to its fullest.

My deceased grandmother always scolded me when I was a kid for not clearing the food plate down to the last grain of rice. For her, leaving uneaten food down to the bin is a big disrespect for nature. All I know about chinese way of thinking, we never kill animal for sports. You guys on the west on the contrary, made hunting popular for sporting event not if you are in hunger or need state. Dont get me wrong, not trying to start a debate but this is an example of bias judgement.

I am chinese origin and I do feel sorry about this. But please do not take this racially as I never hate anyone black yellow or white because some of their individuals do something stupid. There are ALOT of asians who don't agree of such practice although I must also agree that many Asian countries do not enforce enough law on this matter. Also please do not forget the background of Asian people who used to live i poverty so they were forced to eat everything they can find.

@Soschwoons It would be better to protect the species and make sure nobody hunts them. However animals are not only killed for eating, but also used to make products that are all around us, like glue, gelatin, paint, medicines, pet food, cake mix, dyes, inks, perfumes, cosmetics, etc. they ALL contain parts of animals, and we need to kill them to make those things. We should stop them from killing and eating endangered species by protecting them, not by going vegetarian

Yes, we live inextricably interwoven with upwards of 40,000,000 non-human species with at least 1000 living inside and on the surface of even the healthiest humans. We are walking ecotones as are most animals. Still, we forget that we may not create thermal maximum, nuclear fallout or associated mass extinctions. It is not our right, divine or otherwise.

~ Since the 60's, municipal water fluoridation has used hydrofluorosilicic acid, a waste byproduct from smoke stacks of aluminum and fertilizer plants, containing 23% sodium fluoride (rat poison), mercury, arsenic, lead, barium, cadmium, palonium 20 and other trace poisons. Water filters can't remove it, regardless of their claims. And, commercial pesticides are fluorides. So, between agri-run-off and waste water, our rivers perpetually poison our oceans. We are poisoning our reefs.

Kids need to use their brain these days before even trying to post.

Human beings are a plague on this planet. And China contains some of the worst people - bears are becoming endangered because of the stupid Chinese belief that bear galls are an aphrodisiac - even though there's no scientific evidence for it - and this over fishing.

I guess the rational thing to do would be to forbid (and control) cathing the fish that are too young as well as promote consumation of older and mature fish... It would help a lot to promote these qualities as desirable amongst rich or whatever consumants.If the people were told that this kind of fish is better and more valuable and, of course,if it were made more expensive, they would buy it. And you would solve two problems at the same time : satisfy the market and satisfy the reproduction.

@missingt00th you are not rich just because you drive a stupid suv.

You seemes to be a person with a lot of negative feelings for other people. Sad. Maybe you should see them as part of nature and be humble to them. Oh, and don´t take me to serious. ;) PS: We should protect the nature. And having $´s could be helpful. :P

Damon - 10 years ago
@cutietwo22 ya, but who gives a shit about the ocean?
cutietwo22 - 10 years ago
@jakerawr101 what they say is true. It is said that coral reefs and most fish that live in them will be gone in 30-40 years. All because people do not know when enough is enough. Eating fish is not bad, but over-fishing to eat fish is bad. We won't die if we stop eating fish for a while to let their numbers jump back. I think if the whole world boycotted fishing for a couple years or so, it would help the ocean is so many ways!

20-30 years from now when there's nothing left and the only fish that can be eaten have to be from hundreds of miles away and slowly become a delicacy more than a common diet, I hope China, Japan and other Asian countries are happy for being the majority that wiped out entire species and habitats. I know it sounds racist but it always seems China/Japan/Asian etc. are mostly responsible for some form of species being push to the brink of extinction simply because they want, not need, to eat it.

Be a sceptic all you like, In respiration, glucose is oxidized and thus releases energy. The carbon atoms of the sugar molecule are released as carbon dioxide. If you don't get this, or believe it, i really couldn't give two, or even one. Maybe next time you'll think before acting condescending. And by the way, it's hilarious you question my sources (of a basic and obvious fact) and then recommend i use "english wikipedia". You realise, anyone can write a wikipedia article? Hilarious. Bye.

The extinction of certain species leaves more resources for others to thrive.

Do you think I exagerate? Google Permian Extinction and tell me again in 20 yrs if I was exagerating. It is not the planet that is in danger, it will survive, it is humans the ones that are in danger of self aniquilation.

But aparently we are going to destroy the oceanic transporter before anything else, the water won't cool enough at the poles causing the Oceans to stall, once stalled, the Ocean water will become poisonous and just about all Ocean life will die, potable water will vanish quickly and we'll be forced to filter Ocean water for our consumtion, but the demand will be too big and there will be global thirst and likely war for potable water resources.

the other day I met an Eng that didn't know plants produced Oxigen, sadly it is not the first time I meet a prof. that lack so basic knowledge regardless of all the information out there, scientists have been warning the world for about 30 years and just a few are listening until very recently, a couple of months ago that gvts around the world are already having a glimpse of what it will be like if we don't take drastical meassures in the next just 5 years.

Asians, Americans, Mexicans even Australians, everywhere humans eat to much and wrong. Our body is not even designed to have a meat meat based diet, basically eating meat more than 2 days a week is too much. We produce enormous amount of grain and drain enormous amounts of water and it is all wasted in cows pigs and chicken for human consumption. There is plenty of fish, but humans are even more and are eating way too many fish too, there is half the fish there was just 10 years ago...

Be Good. Be Green. But not psycho 'green'. We don't need to destroy the economic system to 'save the planet'.

no, fish came first, human then comes along and finds fish tasty, humans eats too many fish, humans build too many machines, the whole planet dies.

where did you get those statistics from?, its sad because you think you know everything about what is going to happen and that living in your little secluded world everything is fine and ok..
flyingSnakess - 11 years ago
we already know whats right and wats wrong, but the problem is educating people not to be ignorant and naive like you .stop thinking you know everything
flyingSnakess - 11 years ago
fuck you, if everyone was like you there would be no more fish in the oceans, its not about 1 fish that dies, its about the whole ecosystem and the species. and YOU THINK that over fishing is natural curiosity, and that its because you need to be more educated about them?, thats wat the japs said about their whale hunting,"for scientific purposes" fuckin bs., why do you think you know if its going to be alright, because you are ignorant and naive and uneducated retard, fuck you,
flyingSnakess - 11 years ago
ha FUCK YOU, im saying that they are ignorant because if you dont listen to the news or know anything about what is happening at the present, there is massive uproar about japanese whaling, overfishing, polluting the worlds ocean . the list goes on. so get YOURSELF EDUCATED YOUSELF EDUCATED YOU SICK SON OF A BITCH and stop acting like theres nothing wrong with overfishing and killing off the worlds oceans. listen to the moral of the video, thats y its there. stfu and to every1 who thinks its ok

I'll tell you what is natural: Fish living in sea; not tanks.
Josh8292 - 11 years ago
Everyone in the world is contributing to the destruction of our planet. Whether you look at from a large scale of continent, country or population or even a small scale of every individual person. Everyday more and more "resources" are depleted. Everyday we use way more than should and create tons and tons of waste and pollution. And it's not going to stop until everything is gone or until nature exacts her revenge on us. It's really sad to think of what we've done to this beautiful planet.
Haroon - 11 years ago
I wish people would stop buying fish for their tanks just for selfish decoration. Fish were born in the open water for a reason: THEY BELONG THERE!

I hear you on that I couldn't agree more with you. Thats why I want to be a game warden but I dont want to encourage non hunting and fishing.
matty thomas
matty thomas - 12 years ago
im not yelling.. k =) .but the point of the video is not encouraging people not to eat fish, the problem is there taking reef fish at a juvenile age before they have the chance to reproduce, therefore endangering the species.
SyeraMiktayee - 12 years ago
Or start buying/raising *sustainable* meat. :P
Raymond Severns
Raymond Severns - 12 years ago
What this movie doesn't show is that many country's are trying to make laws against this. so there should be no reason to hate a country were all the same just different looks on the outside. I hunt, and fish and I don't like seeing over fishing ether that's why I support clubs like B.A.S.S and others so we can stop this. But going vegetarian is not my option. I'm sorry but its not. Thanks =) PS I don't want anyone yelling at me for this post. I'm not being rude. Thanks again

That's really sad. :( I'm not some crazy tree-hugger or anything, but at least give them a chance to live and reproduce where the belong. I mean, Jesus Christ. ._. Over-fishing the reef fish JUST so you can have a pretty thing in your house? Or JUST so you don't have to eat something a little less tasty or whatever? Damn idiots.

And cattle on public land trample or eat everything that grows and shits in the stream. Producing major amounts of greenhouse another Big Mac. Go forth and multiply? Not anymore. Too many people, not enough earth. Get a clue, over population is the MAIN problem of all problems on earth.
