Alaska Pollock Collapsing

A staple of the US fast food industry, the Alaska Pollock, has shrunk its numbers to record low levels. Pollock is used in McDonald's fish sandwiches, frozen fish sticks, fish and chips and imitation crabmeat. It also helps feed fur seals, whales and the endangered Steller sea lions. According to Taina Honkalehto, a research fishery biologist with the US National Marine Fisheries Service, pollock biomass in US waters was down to 940,000 tons from 1.8 million tons last year, more than a 50% decrease. "Just as the financial institutions on Wall Street collapsed due to poor oversight and mismanagement, the pollock fishery is on the fast-track to collapse as well," Greenpeace said.

It is impossible for Creation to stand the irresponsible exploitation of God's animals and the environment. Unless humans make compassionate and responsible choices, the devastation on Earth will be unstoppable. Adopting a plant-based diet is one crucial way to be good stewards of God's Creation.
