Climate Change Hunger

Killing the ocean food web is not just about a world 2nd or 3rd biggest fishing nation squid catch that has collapsed 60 percent in one year.

In my opinion based on long-term research since 1982, sewage nutrient pollution is the primary cause of world fish depletion, cause is not fishing and not climate change.

Evidence of substance indicates human sewage nutrient pollution is proliferating water ecosystem algae, killing seagrass food web nursery. Ocean algae is absorbing and transporting more warmth than usual, increasing ocean warmth somewhere (surely).

Wrong diagnosis is a waste of time and often fatal.

What is more urgent, sustaining islander seafood supply or reducing CO2 emissions?

Can anybody now deny fish devastation and socio-economic consequences and need for urgent solutions?
