In an analysis of scientific data going back to the 1960s and historical records over a thousand years, the researchers found that marine biodiversity -- the variety of ocean fish, shellfish, birds, plants and micro-organisms -- has declined dramatically, with 29 percent of species already in collapse.
I may have to join the 4D in giving up eating our fishy friends. I did it once before for almost a year, but eventually caved. I do love seafood. I'd also like to contribute to marine reserves, but having no money or political clout I'm unsure how to help this cause.
