Millions of pounds of food fish are thrown back into the ocean, dead, when fishing quotas are surpassed.
Reasonably, we know that 100% of all waste cannot be eliminated on Earth or even in outer space, which is filling up fast with expensive space debris. But, where will waste end?
Do you know anyone that throws out a full refrigerator of good food every week and buys more? If you do, then you have an idea of what five major fisheries in America do every day.
Even though water covers more surface area of the planet than does land, that water has limits to how much it can hold. Reach a saturation point and you have the Dad Sea, on which you can sit down and read a book.
Our bodies of water on Earth are filling with trash-bag islands in all the several gyres of the oceans, oil spills, toxic wastes, human wastes, organic runoffs from food production, cruise ship wastes, and aluminum soda pop cans from the US Navy.
The current largest problem is the multi-billion pound waste every year that is tossed into the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the Gulf of Mexico by five now-notorious fisheries. This includes mammals like seals, sea lions, dolphins, and whales. Turtles also die.
