While I could not find data on the single most overfished species, here is the “red fish” list from green peace. Their criteria for putting a fish on the list is that it is either endangered, fishing causes habitat destruction or has a negative effect on other species, fishing is unregulated or it causes harm to local communities dependent on fishing.
Alaska Pollock Atlantic Cod or Scrod Atlantic Halibut (US and Canadian) Atlantic Salmon (wild and farmed) Atlantic Sea Scallop Bluefin tuna Big Eye Tuna Chilean Sea Bass (also sold as Patagonia Toothfish) Greenland Halibut (also sold as Black halibut, Atlantic turbot or Arrowhead flounder) Grouper (imported to the U.S.) Hoki (also known as Blue Grenadier) Monkfish Ocean Quahog Orange Roughy Red Snapper Redfish (also sold as Ocean Perch) Sharks Skates and Rays South Atlantic Albacore Tuna Swordfish Tropical Shrimp (wild and farmed) Yellowfin Tuna
