It’s an old-fashioned story.
In the 19th century, when the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans were more crowded, the sea was more acidic, and a huge number of animals, including whales, sharks and penguins, died.
The result was an enormous loss of biodiversity.
In 20th-century Australia, the Great Barrier Reef was decimated by a combination of man-made pollution and a rise in global temperatures.
In Japan, which had a very different climate, a massive fish and wildlife decline started in the 1970s and 1980s, and the Japanese government even created the Japan Aquariums Conservation Plan to stop it.
It took decades for the decline to become clear, but the Japanese public became increasingly concerned about the problem and the government did its best to address it.
And the problem is getting worse.
A recent study in the journal Nature Climate Change has found that fish populations in Australia are already at the end of their lives and that their numbers are falling faster than any other country in the world.
The loss of the fish stocks, combined with other environmental factors such as the burning of fossil fuels, has led to an increasingly polluted ocean, which has led marine life to die off.
The study by researchers from the University of New South Wales, the Australian National University, the University’s Marine Science Laboratory, and several other research institutions looked at a number of indicators in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, and it was not a coincidence that fish stocks were declining faster in the two areas.
“The Pacific Ocean is already losing fish stocks faster than anywhere else in the planet, and if we’re not careful, it could happen again in a very short period of time,” said lead author, Andrew Geddes, from the university’s Marine and Environmental Research Centre.
In the Atlantic, which also has a very diverse ecosystem, scientists estimate that there are around 60,000 species of fish left, while the Pacific Ocean has around 1,800 species.
In contrast, just 10 percent of the species on the Atlantic are on the Pacific.
Fish are also dying at a faster rate than anywhere in the Western Hemisphere, according to a recent study published in the Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United States of America.
The study looked at 13 years of data from the World Wide Web, which allowed scientists to analyse fish populations worldwide.
The data showed that fish species that were once abundant in the oceans have been decimated in recent years, particularly in areas such as Japan, Australia and the United Kingdom.
Scientists are also starting to realise that warming and acidification are killing fish.
“We can see the effect of acidification in our oceans in many areas around the world,” said Dr Michael Wetherill, an ecologist at the University College London, who was not involved in the study.
“And the consequences of that, including fish extinction, have already started to become obvious.”
This is not just a global issue, according the study, because many of the factors that are contributing to fish decline are also affecting wildlife.
For example, pollution is driving a huge decline in fish, and in recent decades, the use of fertilisers has increased as a result of climate changes.
It is also affecting marine life, which have to cope with an increasing amount of CO2, which can make them more susceptible to disease.
This research is the first to look at these factors and shows the link between the effects of climate-change on the oceans and other environmental issues.
It is a huge and exciting study, but it does not say everything about the future of fish stocks.
For example, it does show that fish are not the only ones suffering.
In many parts of the world, fish are disappearing faster than ever before and the effects are already being felt.
The researchers say the study will help scientists to better understand what is happening and to develop strategies to help protect fish populations.
