Daniel Pauly, University of British Columbia oceanographer, considers jack mackerel in the southern Pacific a startling indicator.

“This is the last of the buffaloes”, he warned, iWatch News reports. “When they’re gone, everything will be gone … This is the closing of the frontier”.

Delegates from at least 20 countries will gather next week in Chile for an annual meeting of the South Pacific Regional Fisheries Management Organization (SPRFMO) to discuss options to curb over-fishing.
