Mountain top removal, under the ocean

The UN's attempt to ban ocean-bottom trawling has failed. Unlike mountain top removal above ground (see the satellite images on google earth), the undersea version is invisible to most of us as it takes place out on the high seas and in deep water. Out of sight out of mind as the saying goes!

But it's no less destructive and is playing a huge role in killing the oceans.

My message to you today, all the millions who read this blog, is stop eating fish unless you caught it yourself with a hook from the side of a dam, river or or from a rock along the coastline.
