Your Fault: Global Seafood Supplies Could Maybe Possibly Shrink

Starting the day off with the latest in doom and gloom from the Cult of Climastrology, which is pretty much the norm, right?

Global seafood supply could shrink if we don’t act now, study says. Here’s why

About 3 billion people around the globe rely on seafood for their main source of protein. But as the population grows, wild-caught supply isn’t enough to sustain increasing demand for oysters, clams, salmon, shrimp and other marine delicacies.

So, experts have turned to aquaculture, which is essentially farming in the ocean where fish, shellfish and aquatic plants are bred, raised and harvested. It produces nearly half of the seafood we eat.

But a new study casts doubt on the method’s ability to save the seafood industry from ruin ?— at least if we don’t take immediate action to address the climate crisis, researchers with the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada say.

Global farmed seafood supply such as salmon and mussels is projected to drop 16% by 2090 if the world continues to burn fossil fuels such as petroleum, coal and natural gas at its current rate. Regions such as Norway, China, Myanmar, Bangladesh and the Netherlands, where seafood farming is abundant, could see supply decrease by as much as 40% to 90%.

2090. Yup, 2090.

In a hypothetical scenario where action is taken against climate change, farmed seafood supply is expected to grow by about 17% over three decades and by 33% by the end of the century, according to the study published Monday, Dec. 13 in the journal Global Change Biology.

Would you be surprised that this is a computer model which looks at the same old emissions models of Doom? Because that’s exactly what the study does. About as useful and realistic as looking in a crystal ball.

    It won’t be the fossil fuels side of the equation. It’s the giant communist Chinese fishing fleets over fishing their waters and then encroaching on others. I’m pretty sure that Japan “unexpectedly” finds their fishing fleets in other nation’s waters too.

    It’s not just an Asian thing either, France is fishing in Britain’s coastal waters and they could care less what the Brits say about it.

    I imagine the eco-plan is “ban all of the ships and boats”…for the children. With the exception of the US, I can’t see any of the top 10 fishing nations (communist China, Indonesia, India, Vietnam, The US, Russia, Japan, Philippines, Peru, Bangladesh) even beginning to ponder thinking about complying with this

    “as the population grows”

    But the population is about to crash. Virtually every country outside sub-Saharan Africa has a birth rate that is less than replacement. In much of Europe it is only half replacement. Japan’s population is actually falling, and China’s is not far behind.

    Overfishing is a major environmental problem, but it will disappear will falling populations, beginning about 2030.

    Yep, it’s true – the Roman Climate Optimum killed off all sealife. Then ,just when new forms were starting to evolve, the Medieval Warm Period did it again.

    All current sealife above the unicellular level has evolved since then. According to the warmists, anyway.

    Teach loves seafood but is unconcerned that NJ lost 90% of its lobster harvest in the last 30 years
    Lobster eggs float and need a very specific water temp to survive
    NJ water is warming much faster than the global average
