MacIntyre, F. and Estep, K.W. and Noji, T.T. (1995) Is it deforestation or desertification when we do it to the ocean? Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 18(3), pp. 4-6.
Anecdotal evidence from 60 marine species suggests a pattern of resource exhaustion rather than sustainable use. There is a reason to believe that biomass in the Atlantic Western Boundary Current Fishery-Grand Banks, Newfoundland, North Atlantic, Norwegian Sea, Barents Sea is 3-10% of what it was when fishing was started. Selective removal of large species may have caused major nutrient distribution in both rich and poor waters.
