You are spot on. There is certainly a butterfly effect that occurs when certain communities that depend on fish for their survival are robbed of their ability to adequately sustain themselves.

I suppose the only counter point I have is that these articles (and the documentary especially) is exponentially more likely to be viewed by individuals who consume commercially caught fish (and certainly don’t depend on them for survival) than the groups and communities that feed their families with the small quantities of fish they catch themselves.

Veganism is never black and white — there will always be communities that depend on eating animals to survive — but they are not the target audience with whom to discuss these concerns. What do you think?

Thanks for your comment as always!
