Time to say Goodbye after 400 million years

It never stops, this relentless destruction of oceanic life. After having outlived the dinosaurs, the coelacanth looks like it on the way out. The reason? Us and our wasteful overfishing:

Now it seems that man may have discovered the fish just to eradicate it, as ever deeper trawling throws up serious fears for the already dwindling populations of the fish, which lives at depths of between 100 and 300 metres (328ft to 984ft).

It never stops, this charting of death and xenocide. An unrelenting parade of dead fish, born of shortsighted greed and stoked with the hellfire of capitalism.
