We've eaten 90 percent of the big fish in the world's oceans. About half of the world's coral reefs are already gone. We're nearing the point of no return in many ways when it comes to the aquatic health of the world. Dr. Sylvia Earle is an expert in the field, and she's going to give a talk at the Maritime Aquarium Thursday night about what we need to do to keep things in check. Sadly, at the rate things are going there's little hope for many species already. If we don't take charge and responsibility soon, no one will.
