TEDx USC: Donal Manahan and the "Blue Revolution"

Donal Manahan (biology USC professor) demonstrates how the fishing industry is literally sucking the fish from the sea like a vacuum cleaner. The United States aquatic protein capacity is small (about the size of Greenland's), not the "bread basket" of the world. A solution? Hybrid organisms made to grow fast (i.e. slower metabolisms)

Arthur C Clarke:
"How innappropriate to call this planet Earth when it clearly should be named Ocean."

Sounds good, I love oysters! But all those giant half shells will make us much more attractive target to alien space otter invasion!
