There Are Always Other Fish in the Sea—or Are There?

We’ve all heard the adage, “There are always other fish in the sea,” usually proffered to us by our mothers or friends after we have a bad breakup or suffer rejection in the dating wild. However, contrary to what she would have you believe, your mom may not have been right this time. With the human global population increasing, our oceans are under greater and greater duress. What once seemed like a bottomless source of endless marine life is now in danger of becoming the world’s largest desert. Human pollution and ocean harvesting have depleted much of the world’s fish and aquatic life. As regulations have increased and fish numbers have decreased, the fishing industry has expanded their search for new populations. Using deep sea sonar technology and fishing instruments, fishing vessels are able to find and capture large numbers of fish, often with devastating results for the ecosystem. While the larger events like the BP oil spill garner media attention for the destructive acts of humans on the environment, it is the daily pressure we exert through unsustainable practices that do the most harm in the long-term. 

The Hunt for Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is becoming increasingly popular. Nations and industries are investing in new technologies to discover alternative energy solutions. In a few years, it may be plausible to drastically reduce human environmental impact.

Every Drain Leads to the Ocean

While technically not all drains lead to the ocean, like our orange clownfish once suggested, the majority of human waste is channeled into our ocean waters. Unfortunately for the coral reefs and other ocean life, this poses a danger to the health and vitality of our aquatic ecosystems.

Tidal Energy

In the pursuit for renewable energy sources, man has naturally turned to the ocean for answers. The ocean offers an attractive source for energy if we are only able to tap it. One of the main energy solutions currently in progress is the harnessing of tidal power.
