It was the perfect time to buy a seafood bag and have a few bags of salmon and tuna delivered to your door, but that was not possible in 2016.
While the market was flooded with canned goods and many people were looking for seafood that could be caught in the Pacific Ocean, many were also searching for fresh produce.
The Pacific Ocean is home to many species of sea creatures, but the Pacific has also been the epicenter of one of the most destructive storms in recent memory.
Since the storm hit, the ocean has been battered by over 100 million tons of debris, with more than 4.7 million people and 4,000 homes damaged.
“It is not a place where people are going to be happy, so the only way to make sure you have fresh food for your family is to get fresh,” said Kristin Stiles, a marine scientist and conservation biologist.
“That is the main thing we need to look at: Where are you going to find that food, what kind of seafood are you looking for, how long do you have it, and what are the climate conditions.”
Stiles has spent the past three years working with coastal communities to develop a sustainable and healthy seafood industry.
Her goal is to create a sustainable, long-term solution for people and communities in the Southeast.
“There is so much going on right now with sea turtles and ocean life that they are very vulnerable,” she said.
“We are going through a time where we need an adaptive management approach to deal with this threat, which is a natural, human response.”
As the storm ravaged the Pacific, the fishing industry collapsed, and more than 20% of the seafood sold in the US in 2016 was imported.
Many people in the region found themselves struggling to make ends meet and were unable to afford the costs associated with fresh produce purchases.
Some of these communities, such as the coastal communities in Texas, California, New Mexico, and Arizona, are experiencing a dramatic decline in their economies and could face economic consequences if climate change continues to accelerate.
“This is the first time we have seen a major coastal community that is going through this type of loss, especially since this storm,” said Chris Ehrlich, an ecologist and senior fellow at the Center for Food Safety, a nonprofit environmental group.
“They are losing the ability to provide jobs, housing, and other services to people who are already struggling to survive.
It is a real concern.”
The most important thing to remember about sustainable seafood production, according to Ehrich, is that the seafood that you buy is the one you buy, not the fish that is caught off the coast.
“What you see in seafood is not the product of an individual fish,” Ehriklich said.
It’s actually the product from a larger system that is growing, he said.
That means that when you buy seafood, you are paying for a lot of environmental damage, and that’s why you need to think about sustainable farming.
“You need to understand that the environment of the food is really critical to the health of the species, but it’s not just about the fish,” he said, explaining that the vast majority of the planet’s fisheries come from small and marginal places.
“If you look at what is happening right now in the ocean, we need a holistic approach to sustainable production,” he added.
“These types of systems have a very big role to play in the sustainability of food.”
The key is to recognize the impacts of climate change before you purchase fish.
“The seafood we eat is actually not the most important part of the ocean,” Stiles said.
The main concern is that these types of fisheries will fail, and the ocean will become uninhabitable, which means people will have no way to sustain themselves.
In a nutshell, Stiles explained that people in coastal communities will need to focus on supporting their local communities and helping them adapt to a changing climate.
“I don’t think people should buy salmon or tuna from the ocean.
It should be a way to supplement what is available in their local community,” she explained.
In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Stokes said that while she and other scientists are looking for ways to help coastal communities, they also have a responsibility to the people of the Pacific. “
Our oceans are the food of our planet, and they are going extinct in this century.”
