So here’s a sobering thought – In 40 Years We Could Face An Ocean Without Fish. Go check out that link and see if you still want to order fish for lunch today 😦 In fact I’ve seen this decline myself in the lessening aggregations of Snapper in the Red Sea each year.
The theme for this year’s world ocean day is Youth: the Next Wave for Change.
If we can get young people into preserving the ocean now then there might be some life left in it for their children to enjoy… otherwise there will only be the photos we can take today and the sour fishy aftertaste of extinction. Please take a moment today to check out these links and see how you can help – even if it’s only be spreading the word. World Ocean Day – “Wear Blue, Tell Two”. Hopefully this blog post will reach more than two 🙂

- Monterey Bay Aquarium
- Blue Ocean Institute
- EDF Seafood Selector
- Save Our Seafood
- NDRC Seafood guide
- fish online
- WWF Seafood Guides
Here’s a few of my pictures to celebrate the beauty and life we still have for now:
