Let’s turn the high seas into the world’s largest nature reserve | Enric Sala

What if we could save the fishing industry and protect the ocean at the same time? Marine ecologist Enric Sala shares his bold plan to safeguard the high seas …


  1. if i were ever ruler of the world the first thing i would do is completely halt commercial fishing for a year. i don't care who you are, if you're a crab fisherman in Alaska or a salmon fisher in California it would 100% halt for at least a solid year. next thing i would build a national park where absolutely no human interaction is allowed. no scientists (unless necessary) no hikers, nothing. a place where nature could grow with 0% human interaction

  2. LOVE IT!!! Fantastic idea, fantastic talk and now let's see it get done! The Universities with Marine Biology would be a great place to start. The University of West Florida has an EXCELLENT program!!!

  3. We fish too much, we agriculture too much, to have too much food, to eat too much, to have too early health problems, to then take too much drugs, and end up dying too early… Why? Because in ALL these stages someone makes too much money, that's why.

  4. Let's instead raise awareness of fishes and their sentience 🐠

    I recommend reading the book What a Fish Knows by Johnathan Balcombe to find out about the rich diversity of life and behaviour that our friends in the sea have, they've been around a lot longer than we have!

    And in case you weren't aware: Fish consumption is the leading source of mercury, dioxins, neurotoxins, DDT, putrecine, AGEs, PCBs, PDBEs, and prescription drugs. Among the undesirable effects these contaminants can have on us are lowered intelligence; lower sperm counts; more symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress; and early puberty.

  5. Got to agree but if you notice around the World Us poor people never get to see these great places as were working to hard So it ends up been protected for the rich to visit It is not been selfish it is fact It would end up those that have and those have not AND IT WOULD END UP THE PRIVILEGE FEW once again Why not make these places for every body
