Im really concerned with ecological collapse. I don’t even see the amount of bugs I used to see as a kid. It’s like the insect population has significantly collapsed. Butterflies are rare, haven’t seen a June bug in a decade, sand crabs at the beach are gone, haven’t seen a fire fly in ages… when I was a kid these bugs were abundant. Couple it with climate change, I’m seriously concerned. We are starting to see the effects right now. For instance Utah is about to suffer an eco collapse this year due to getting 3% snowpack this year causing the lake the become too salty and dry, which has a cascade on the entire food chain including migratory birds who will all likely die once they land at this major pit stop and realize krill couldn’t reproduce this year which means no energy for migration.

I try to explain this to my older relatives when they downplay environmental changes. I ask them if they remember car grills full of dead insects after any trip or when the last time they saw a grasshopper was. I know we're doomed because that seems to register with them, but they insist on their baseless opinion anyways. My relatives basically say "it's up to god". I then ask them if they would say that while refusing to move for a speeding bus. They then get mad and tell me they don't want to argue.

Greedpocalypse.

Between 1989 and 2012, the prefecture's annual saury catches mostly hovered between 30,000 and 60,000 tons, according to the fisheries cooperative. Since 2008's record high catch of 62,835 tons, the volume has decreased, falling to below 10,000 tons from 2019. The 2021 catch was 62% lower than 2020's and only about 5% of peak year 2008's total volume.

Japan Fisheries Research and Education Agency explained the main causes behind the poor catches include the saury population's decline and that fishing grounds are getting farther and farther out because saury do not approach waters near Japan. This is believed to be due to factors including overfishing and rising temperatures in waters off of east Hokkaido. https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20220115/p2a/00m/0bu/023000c

There's also significant light activity east of Malaysia even in places where there aren't islands. Not as bright, but there are also a ton of lights in the Beibu Gulf between Hainan (China) and Vietnam. Probably others as well, but those are what jump out to me from the 2016 photo.

Thirty years ago I was a commercial fisherman. I've since stopped eating all seafood (that I love very much). It's out of control and they are fishing our oceans out. I can't be a part of that.

166

u/Darth-Ignis Jul 22 '22

I am a Canadian commercial fisherman currently, and having seen the industry change over the last few years since the arrival of the factory boats in our fishery has led me to feel very pessimistic about the future of the oceans. I believe that changes could be made that could help guide us toward a more sustainable direction, but also recognize that I’m just a guy who has some shallow understanding of the greater picture. The reality about factory fishing is that that clock works in their favour. They can afford to stay out longer than fresh boat, meaning they can justify fishing smaller schools and can effectively mop up everything before it has a chance to recover. It’s very disturbing. The executives don’t give a shit that fresh boats are being out competed, because to them, the factory boats are just a natural evolution of technology. To me, I see it as a signal of the end.

Not a very articulate thought process, and it is anecdotal at best. But it’s how I feel about the matter.

123

u/throwaway1138 Jul 22 '22

I’ve never heard of a factory boat before so I googled it. Per Wikipedia:

Commercial fish processing ships can affect birds, whales, dolphins, turtles and sharks by their broad reach methods of catching fish.

Purse seine ships, with nets up to two kilometres in circumference, can encircle whole shoals of pelagic fish, such as mackerel, herring and tuna.

A major international scientific study released in November 2006 in the journal Science found that about one-third of all fishing stocks worldwide have collapsed (with a collapse being defined as a decline to less than 10% of their maximum observed abundance), and that if current trends continue all fish stocks worldwide will collapse within fifty years.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Factory_ship

Oh my god 😞

49

u/Darth-Ignis Jul 22 '22

I know. It’s horrific. Ironically everyone on the island freaks out about the herring fishery in the Straight of Georgia, where science shows a thriving stock assessment… but none of them even realize what’s happening on the west coast of the island.

45

u/BabyYodasDirtyDiaper Jul 22 '22 All-Seeing Upvote

The worst part:

Overfishing has depleted some fish populations to the point that large scale commercial fishing, on average around the world, is not economically viable without government assistance. Many states offer subsidies to their fishing fleets, which is unsustainable in the long term. According to Oceana, the global fishing fleet is currently up to 250 percent larger than it needs to be to catch what the oceans can sustainably produce.

"Oh, you've fished so much that there are no fish left and you can no longer afford to keep fishing because there are none left to catch and sell? Let's subsidize you so that you can go out and catch the last few fish that still exist! That way we can make sure we've exterminated them for good and they'll never recover."

I did salmon up in Alaska with a stationary net. They seem to have their shit together up there as far as sustainability. I agree with the factory boats. McDonalds has boats that go out empty and return with fish fillet squares all frozen up and in bulk. People can get together and limit catch for the sake of the future, but corporations won't.

u/Darth-Ignis Jul 22 '22 edited Jul 22 '22

Here in BC the factory trawlers are now pushing for processing licenses in order to do all of their processing work at sea as well. This effectively destroys the job market for shore workers in our industry as well once the fresh boats are totally wiped out.
