Overfishing visually explained

Posted to Infographics  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

As part of their mission to reform destructive fishing practices, Ocean2012 explains the risk of catching too much fish, in motion graphics. I like the pixelated aesthetic.

See also Nigel Upchurch’s video on farmed fish.

As a consumer, I’m still confused. Can someone make a list of fish I can and can’t eat without disrupting ocean equilibrium?

Update: Here’s another on the story of sushi by Four Story Treehouse. It uses hand-crafted figurines and is more emotionally driven. [Thanks, Nigel]
