Somewhere around 1950 and 2010, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) disparaged the aggregate number of fish on the planet’s seas by over half, as per the new book Global Atlas of Marine Fisheries, the result of ten years of research. Rather than total fish discovers hitting a pinnacle of 86 million tons in 1996, the number was really 130 million tons. That implies the officially genuine decrease in fish stocks since the mid-1990s was significantly more extreme than researchers suspected.

Truth be told, more than three times more extreme. Dropping a gigantic normal of 1.2 million tons in catches each year.
