China’s Insatiable Appetite for Fish Is A Colossal Disaster In The Making

China is the largest consumer, producer, and exporter of every species caught by some 3,400 industrial fishing vessels harvesting the waters of over 90 coastal nations and the deep ocean. Everything about China is colossal – its land area, coastline, population, insatiable need for natural resources, gross national product, demand for import and export markets, massive bureaucracy, and growing influence in geopolitical affairs. Its place in the world is big by any dimension, and in every one, it is growing.With regard to the ocean, particularly to fisheries, China is the largest consumer, producer, and exporter of every species caught by some 3,400 industrial fishing vessels harvesting the waters of over 90 coastal nations and the deep ocean. According to a 2016 report by Mongabay.com, an excellent online conservation and environmental news service, China’s annual catch is estimated at some 15 million tons, making it the world’s top fishing nation twice over. The result has also been colossal: a 50% reduction in its own domestic fish stocks, a 600% rise in per capita seafood demand, and a global fleet that is 2 to 3 times larger than what the entire global ocean is estimated to sustainability support.Fish catches are presumably reported to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), but the statistics are very unreliable as a result of under-reporting, indifference to treaty quotas, illegal species catch, and stocks caught outside national jurisdictions. This lack of or misrepresentation of information is becoming more clear; the European Union estimates that the actual Chinese catches may be over twelve times what is reported through official channels and is dominating and decimating supply particularly in developing nations in West Africa where there is no domestic fleet to compete.

So Many Reasons To March This Saturday

The 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency falls this Saturday (an occasion we’ll be marking with a giant march of resistance), but pundits already are labeling him as a do-nothing failure. Given that his party also controls Congress, it’s actually surprising how many of the goals Trump set during his campaign he has failed to achieve.Unfortunately, there’s one glaring exception. Trump and his administration have (with a lot of help from Congress) been relentless, ruthless, and shameless in attacking protections from pollution, exposing us to health threats, retreating from climate action, and renouncing science […]

How The Michael Vick Case Brought Us Closer To Ending Dog Fighting

Ten years ago this week, a watershed event in animal cruelty captured the nation’s attention: the investigation of NFL quarterback Michael Vick for dog fighting. But looking back, the most important milestone was not so much the story of a superstar convicted of operating a dog fighting ring. Instead, it was the revelation to most Americans that dog fighting is still active, popular across the country, and sadistically enjoyed by the kinds of people we thought we knew.Whether or not you believe in Vick’s rehabilitation, or that his crimes should be forgiven and forgotten, the Vick case was instrumental in bringing about critical advancements in our tools and our ability to further curb dog fighting.For example, 10 years ago, it was common for dogs seized in dog fighting cases to be immediately euthanized due to the perception that they’re inherently aggressive and dangerous. The Vick case triggered behavior experts to take a harder look. Now, dogs are evaluated as individual animals, and placement decisions are based on behavior, not on background or circumstances. In fact, of the 49 Vick dogs evaluated by the ASPCA-led team, only one was deemed behaviorally unfit for rehabilitation, sanctuary placement, or adoption.Other advancements since the Vick case:Major Dog Fighting RescuesSince 2007, the ASPCA, along with other rescue groups, have worked closely with federal, state and local authorities to infiltrate major organized dog fighting networks, including the largest (July 2009) and second largest (Aug 2013) dog fighting raids in U.S. […]
