fishing = food for americans to eat

with this food source not existing anymore, that means the food must come from some place else. and at a higher cost. and probably not in the same amounts.

so will americans pay higher prices? eat other kinds of food? how are restaurants handling the loss of food source?

reporters don't seem to be touching this subject at the moment.

what do you all know and have to say about it?
