Abstract

Many of the world’s fisheries are threatened by over-exploitation or
fish kills from run-off of industrial, agricultural and urban pollutants.
The latter tends to be localised; however, over 50 years ago the explorer Thor Heyendall discovered the unexpected in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean in his ’Kon Tild’ expedition -- large globules of congealed pollutants. While the pollution of our rivers, seas and oceans has only
taken on dramatic dimensions since the rapid industrialisation and human
population growth of the ~entieth century, over-fishing has known no boundaries for much longer. However, only in recent times have the consequences become evident. Two prime examples are the fight over
limited fish stock that led to the English-Icelandic cod wars in the 1970s,
and the near destruction of the Newfoundland cod fishery in the early
1990s.
