I agree with you when you say government will put larger restrictions on pollution. But to control it is very difficult and alomost impossible. Once the sea life starts depleting there is no way you can increase it. It is something easy to damage and hard to recover. Look at the other extint specis and we know how humanity failed to preserv the natural resorces. Many birds, animals like tiger cheetah and snakes as well as plants are being extint because of human intervantion. there is protection to these in many countries but this is really not helping. I want to be hopeful about seafood but I cant be realistically.
This doesn't alarm me too much. As time goes on, the government will increasingly put new restrictions on pollution as it has been since the industrial revolution. The EPA won't let something like this happen. Plus, I don't believe all of the Global Warming hype. We are part of a larger trend, and there is no way to pinpoint this on us.

Do you think this might be true? what could be done to aviod this?
Yup... I do think it is true. This is becoz fishes in the ocean doesn't actually belong to someone and so it is pretty hard to regulate the industry. Self-regulation amongst fishermen is the only way to go but alas... people are naturally short-sighted and so I don't forsee anyting being done. Nature just have to run its course. As fish stocks depletes, the number of fishermen would decline and there might even be instances where the whole fishing industry just collapses... that would give the fish time to replenish itself. The bigger worry is more of pollution as polluted waters might actually kill off everything and what we are left would be a dead sea, so to speak.
As for farming the fishes that we eat, I think that would be the way to go in the future. Come on, most of the stuff that we eat aren't wild anymore. Our vegetables, pork, beef, chicken, mutton, ostriches etc. are mostly farmed. And as human population continues to explode, if we want to eat fish, then we would have to farm them. And it is not that far-fetched since we already farmed salmon and sturgeon that produces caviar. Hehe... I'm waiting for them to farm sharks so that I can indulge myself without guilt in shark's fin. Currently, I try to avoid shark's fin whenever possible.

But that doesn't sound to good too, but the world is changing and you can't do anything about it, people won't finish fishing, they usually don't thing about the future, they think about present and money.

I stopped in the 80's when cod stocks were collapsing in the UK and Europe and ofc all the propganda about Dolphins in Tuna nets..
The worst thing is about all of this...its been predicted for 20 years already and no one has done anything about it..
In Europe for instance the UK and Scotland are banned from fishing for cod in the North Sea..but hey the Spanish and Greeks fish there everyday breaking all the EU rules..but nothing happens to them!! so they think they shouldnt stop..then the Scottish fishermen see them gettting away with it..so they go out too...
Whats interesting is the fact that if we want to eat fish (personally i wont ever eat it again..really gone off the taste in the last 20 yrs) we will have to setup up big commercial fish farms to do it..and the only people with the money to do this will be MultiNational companies...so maybe soon ALL fish will be Walmart fish!! I just love a good conspiracy!!!
ALso fish in these farms have to be fed all kinds of chemicals and hormones to keep them healthy...just like they used to use in our food in the 70s and 80s....so eating fish will NOT be healthy and nutrious..just quick and easy for the multinationals to breed and sell to you...
Already in Scotland theres been really nasty diseases in Salmon farms which has lead to millions of fish being culled cos it was uneatable and poisioness to humans...
Good luck and thanks for all the fish (that I didnt eat)

It's more testament to the awful things we are currently doing to our planet.
