Pollock fish stocks in Alaska close to collapse

Some very disturbing news from Alaska. According to Reuters the Alaskan stock of pollock fish has fallen by 50 percent since last year and is facing total collapse.
Pollock is an important source for fish in the fast food industry in the US and McDonalds use them in their fish sandwiches so this can have huge influences on the good marked in US

The quota was cut by 28 percent from 2007 to 2008, but the researchers say the pollock is not able to reproduce fast enough to rebuild the stock. This fish species is very important to the fishermen in Alaska and also for the wildlife in the ocean.

I really hope that the authorities will be able to stop the collapse and that this should be a warning to the rest of the world that the fish in the sea is not an endless resource.
