    Mar 31 2013: I think a right step is to begin by not eating ocean fish. A recent study in NYC found that a high percentage of fish is mis-labelled, so trying to eat the "right" fish is hopeless. The talks here on TED regarding destruction of the oceans are enlightening and probably the best one can do is to contribute to efforts to battle environmental destruction. Think of NRDC. Also, consider switching to a vegetarian diet. It will minimize the damage of livestock to grasslands (desertification), increased resistance to antibiotics, energy usage, along with making animals happier!

    The point made by another commentator regarding the infiltration of microscopic bits of plastic is a horrific development which we cannot stop. For a further explanation of this topic, I'd recommend the book The World Without Us - an exploration of how the world will fare if (once) we are gone. Which after viewing many of the videos here seems inevitable.
