Seafood May Be Gone...

The research article which triggered the news stories last week (1)(2)(3)(4) about the collapse of fish populations in the ocean was published in the November 2, 2006, issue of Science: "Impacts of Biodiversity Loss on Ocean Ecosystem Services" by Boris Worm, Edward B. Barbier, Nicola Beaumont et al.

Science is not giving free access from the website (as they sometimes do with hot stories). But if you want to read it at the source, the principal author, Boris Worm, has posted the article on his website. The various news stories and editorials are a lot easier to read... or just look at a graphic, which may tell you much of the story as you can stand to think about.
