Two variations so far – “Canada’s cod, and many other depleted fish, unlikely to recover” and “Study offers bleak outlook for fish recovery”

By Margaret Munro, Postmedia News – Canada’s once bountiful cod stocks are not likely to bounce back, according to an international study on the dangers of overfishing. “Here we are more than 20 years after the cod was effectively depleted, and according to our analysis, the recovery of the cod stocks is highly improbable,” says fisheries scientist Jeffrey Hutchings at Dalhousie University, co-author of the study published in the journal Science on Thursday….at the end of the article: “Ecosystems change,” says Hutchings, noting how seals, herring and mackerel now fill some of the gaps left by Canada’s cod collapse. (which part does he not understand?) contined

Aly Thomson, The Canadian Press HALIFAX – The recovery of overexploited fish populations such as cod has been slower than expected and many depleted stocks may never be able to bounce back, a new study says. continued

It would be great if our Canadian friends would leave comments about this. BH

    It would be great to know when this was published, and also, I wonder what Jeffrey Hutchings does not seem to understand about the over fishing of the unregulated fishing community, seals, and their relationship with cod!
    Maybe he thinks we need another study about seals, and what they eat. Cod liver. Voraciously.
    But lets not ignore the fact that herring double dip when eating cod larvae on the way to the surface, then as codling, going back to bottom, get wacked again.
    But Hey!
    It’s all because of fishermen overfishing. Right?
    Sorry. That’s just to f-ing convenient, and I’m tired of it.
    Maybe we should also be looking at lobster as an issue, also.
    There have never been so many.
