FACTORY FISHING FLEET

Bering Sea, United States — The world’s largest food fishery is on the verge of collapse. Pollock, used to make McDonald’s fish sandwiches, frozen fish sticks, fish and chips, and imitation crabmeat, have had a population decrease of 50 percent since last year.

The dwindling fish populations are largely due to the enormous amounts of fish being removed from Alaska’s Bering Sea. Factory trawlers take over a million tonnes of pollock out of the ocean each year. The fish can’t reproduce and recover as quickly as they are being fished. . . . .Note : . . . for a complete report on this important fishery go to www.greenpeace.org
