What areas are the most over-fished?

    One of the most seriously over-fished areas in the oceans is the Bering Sea, between Alaska and Russia.  This area is also extremely relevant to the US, because more than half the seafood sold in this country comes from waters off of Alaska.  Fishing in the Bering Sea is poorly regulated, with the result that factory fishing ships have stripped the waters of much of their native fish and invertebrate life.  This is bad for marine ecosystems, but also the food supply of traditional communities along the Alaska Coast.  As a solution to the Bering Sea crisis, Greenpeace is advocating the creation of Marine Cultural Heritage Zones in the Bering waters, where fishing would be severely limited.
