"Oh, well, move on to something else."

The World Wildlife Fund (I still haven't forgiven them for swiping WWF from WWE) swears up and down that there will be no more cod left on earth within 15 years.

"In several areas, like the North Sea and the Barents Sea, scientists are calling for lower fish quotas and cod fishing bans, but they are ignored, and business carries on as usual. The onus is on Russia and Norway to prevent the Barents Sea cod stock from suffering a similar fate to that of the North American cod stock which imploded in the 1990s and has not recovered yet."
