I visited the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific today, hoping to get some nice photos of fish. Once again, I found photographing the fish in tanks a daunting task. I enjoyed the visit, and loved watching the fish and invertebrates, but I wasn’t really happy with the photos.
They have a great new exhibit on human population growth, population densities around the globe, energy usage around the globe, global warming, and overfishing of the oceans. Gee, do you think those things might be related? The larger the human population grows, the more impact we have on the natural environment.
Global warming is causing acidification of the oceans as well as temperature changes. Coral reefs are dying off, sharks are being fished out, and the Atlantic bluefin tuna is probably doomed.
Visit the website of the Monterey Bay Aquarium to get their seafood watch list, and eat only sustainably harvested or farmed fish.
