We%u2019re destroying the seas - Salon.com - For centuries, our culture has been fascinated with big fish. From “The Old Man and the Sea” to “Jaws,” ocean giants have embodied the awesome and terrifying power of nature. But they may not be around for much longer. Every year, 16 billion pounds of sea life are lost to overfishing, and 6 million square miles of ocean floor are maimed by industrial gear. Rampant corruption among commercial fisheries has lowered the number of bluefin tuna, marlin and swordfish by approximately 80-90 percent since 1950. All three species could be driven to extinction in a matter of decades, asserts Matt Rigney, author of the new book “In Pursuit of Giants.”
