just got round to reading this fantastic article on the state of the atlantic bluefin tuna.

it’s not good:

“tuna then are both a real thing and a metaphor. literally they are one of the last big public supplies of wild fish left in the world. metaphorically they are the terminus of an idea: that the ocean is an endless resource where new fish can always be found. in the years to come we can treat tuna as a mile marker to zoom past on our way toward annihilating the wild ocean or as a stop sign that compels us to turn back and radically reconsider.”

cheers, kottke.
