Please READ this>> Poor people’s food is fed to fish

 

The use of fish meal in aquaculture also raises moral issues. Fish meal is the least expensive of all foods containing protein. Increasingly, herrings, mackerels and anchovies – which are among the most affordable in developing countries – end up as fish oil and fish meal for aquaculture. At the same time, more valu­able species – such as perch, pike, sole (flatfish) and tuna – are exported or sold to urban middle and upper classes. The poor now are competing for inexpensive fish with fish meal producers.

Despite concern over adverse impacts, deep marine mineral exploration is set to become a global industry, says geologist Chris Yeats.

November 7, 2012 - SciDev.Net

 

The Mining Industry shows no social or environmental responsibility on land, so we can expect them to dessimate the ocean floor  life down below, deep in the ocean eliminating an ecosystem and species we have yet to know or understand.... http://www.scidev.net/en/agriculture-and-environment/opinions/deep-sea-mining-exploration-is-inevitable.html

The fish don't have a chance.  We're taking everything in the fishing trawlers nets, leaving NOTHING for regeneration of stocks and totally dimantling the natural biodiversity of oceans.
