1. IF fishermen "adhere to STRICT science-based CATCH LIMITS"

As if that's going to happen. Japan, Chnia, and other countries do not adhere to the catch limits now imposed.

Plus, these authors have limited their consideration of dire global warming events.

My neighbor, a PhD researcher with the Institute of Marine Sciences spends six weeks every December and January studying plankton and krill in Antarctica. She is not this optimistic. Sadly. Plankton and krill are at bottom of the food chain for fish and their populations are waning due to acidification, pollution, and rising ocean temps. This is indeed reversable IF countries and people make MAJOR changes now. What are the chances of that happening? 0 to none.

I would love to be more hopeful.
