Bankrupting Nature compares financial bubbles and crises to the depletion of natural resources – and that includes oceans:

“Depletion of fisheries in world’s oceans is particularly serious. Research reports have determined that by the middle of this century the world oceans could be left completely empty. However, there is light in the tunnel: reduced fishing quotas in the Baltic Sea and a more resolute grip on illicit fishing have led to the recovery of cod stocks, and Iceland and New Zealand, both countries with large fishing industries, have shown that it is possible to create favourable conditions for sustainable fishing.”

Sustainability is survival for individuals and businesses. Nature will survive, but we may not like the new forms it takes.
