Warming, overfishing, plastic pollution destroying ocean life: Scientists report

Reuters Wed Jun 29 2011
By: Lisa Song

Global warming, overfishing and plastic pollution are wreaking havoc at an unprecedented rate on marine life, reported scientists at a recent meeting of the International Program on the State of the Ocean.

The workshop represents the first time in a decade when experts from separate fields gathered to share their assessment of the oceans. “In each kind of science, the experts were reporting that somewhere in the world the worst-case scenario was already present,” said Tony Pitcher, a professor of fisheries from UBC who attended the meeting.

Climate change is the oceans’ greatest threat, said Daniel Pauly, a fisheries professor UBC who also attended the seminar. Pauly supports the expansion of marine reserves where fishing is banned. “We accept that there must be [protected] parks on land. We don’t conceive the need for that in the water,” he said.
