Another reason to be a vegetarian
For all you pescetarians, I highly recommend you see this movie: End of the Line.
It is about overfishing, and while I have only seen the trailer, it looks like something everyone should see. Here's the description:
"Narrated by Ted Danson and based on the book by Charles Clover, THE END OF THE LINE explores the devastating effect that overfishing is having on fish stocks and the health of our oceans. Scientists predict that if we continue fishing at the current rate, the planet will completely run out of fish by 2048."
Here is a website that gives some examples about what to do: Seafood Watch. If you don't think you can give up eating fish, at least check to see which fish populations are less endangered, or how the fish you eat were caught. The more you know...!
