The 90-Day Plan: DAY 46

The 90 Day Plan - 90 Ways in 90 Days

The 90 Day Plan: Day 46 

Choices we make as consumers influence the product we buy.

If this and other destructive fishing practices continue, what year should we expect to see the total collapse of commercial fishing (hint: it's is sooner than you may think)?
