Anyone who thinks that fish stocks are recovering any time soon is just fucked in the head. It’s going to get hotter and hotter…we’re shitting more and more plastic, and FASTER. Yes, you heard that right — the rate that which we are dumping plastic into the oceans and our waterways is increasing. The fossil fuel giants are all building MEGA plastic factories and processing plants around the world. Our population is growing and cities are pumping so much shit into the water that it’s causing massive “dead zones” in the ocean that are only getting worse. Now because the lowest level of life in the oceans are being absolutely fucked, there will be cascading effects up the food chain. Think of how many fishies rely on coral reefs to survive…now think of many other fish rely on those fishies to survive…now think of how many…and so on. At this rate, we’re not having coral reefs anywhere for long…


What an absolute shame. Salmon are some of the most wonderful fish you will find. Incredibly persistent and strong. I’m so sorry little guys 🙁


“Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. You could see them standing in the amber current where the white edges of their fins wimpled softly in the flow. They smelled of moss in your hand. Polished and muscular and torsional. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.”


Just let humans die so every other species can survive.
