We hope you'll take another look at our overfishing story from Sunday night. The United Nations 2008 report "The State of the World Fisheries and Aquaculture" states that 28 percent of the world's fisheries are overexploited, depleted, or recovering. It goes on to state that this means they are producing less than their maximum potential owing to excess fishing pressure. In other words, they are in big trouble. We are providing a link to the report as well as the definitions for "overexploited," "depleted," and "recovering."
