Points of Mind
Anything you know doesn't matter anymore
Any which way the struggle knocks at the door
Not a thing but an essence and it conquers over all... Pit the heart against the brain the entire empire falls..
Changes Changes I pray God they never see
The evil manifestation that resides around me.
World-wide, overfishing is one of the biggest threats to the health of seas and their inhabitants. Overfishing also affects many people directly – above all in developing countries. Daily, tonnes of fish are hauled out of the sea. Unfortunately this is much more than can be naturally replenished – a real plundering of the world’s oceans.
An overview of the sad facts:
Today, each person eats on average 19.2kg of fish a year – around twice as much as 50 years ago.
In 2013 around 93 million tonnes of fish were caught world-wide.
About 38.5 million tonnes of bycatch results from current preferred fishing practice each year.
Over just 40 years there has been a decrease recorded in marine species of 39%.
Illegal and unregulated fishing constitutes an estimated 11-26 million tonnes (12-28%) of fishing world-wide. Almost 30% of fish stocks commercially fished are over-fished. Over 60% of fish stocks are fully fished.
In the North East Atlantic and nearby seas, 39% of fish stocks are classified as overfished. In the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea there is sufficient data for 85 stocks, which shows that 88% of these (75) are overfished. The European Union is the world’s primary importer of fish, More than 50% of imports are from developing countries.

Forgiveness is a gift to yourself. Allowing yourself to release the negative emotions you are holding. It in no way directly benefits the person being forgiven. You are allowed to forgive someone & never speak to them again. Learn to forgive for the sake of your own self, don’t think of it as giving in, if you are truly wronged & don’t think you should forgive someone, realize that you must forgive to save yourself from the heartache, but you in no way must allow that person the opportunity to harm you again. Forgive but never forget. ⏳ #neuven
