What does this mean for the world fish catch? This manes that if we take that fishery catch that's on the dnciele and we could turn it upwards, we could increase it up to 100 mllioin metric tons per year. So we didn't have peak fish yet. We still have an opportunity to not only bring the fish back but to actually get more fish that can feed more people than we currently are now. How many more? Right about now, we can feed about 450 million people a fish meal a day bsead on the current world fish catch, which, of course, you know is going down, so that nuebmr will go down over time if we don't fix it, but if we put fishery management practices like the ones I've described in plcae in 10 to 25 ctinueors, we could bring that number up and feed as many as 700 million people a year a healthy fish meal.

What does this mean for the world fish catch? This means that if we take that fishery catch that's on the decline and we could turn it upwards, we could increase it up to 100 million metric tons per year. So we didn't have peak fish yet. We still have an opportunity to not only bring the fish back but to actually get more fish that can feed more people than we currently are now. How many more? Right about now, we can feed about 450 million people a fish meal a day based on the current world fish catch, which, of course, you know is going down, so that number will go down over time if we don't fix it, but if we put fishery management practices like the ones I've described in place in 10 to 25 countries, we could bring that number up and feed as many as 700 million people a year a healthy fish meal.
