This is incredible video from a TED lecture explains the current dire state of our oceans and how they directly effect our well being.
Jeremy Jackson has enlightened me to the horrible ocean destruction.
Here's the description of the talk: "In this bracing talk, coral reef ecologist Jeremy Jackson lays out the shocking state of the ocean today: overfished, overheated, polluted, with indicators that things will get much worse. Astonishing photos and stats make the case."

Jackson's explanation of what trawling does to the ocean floor is nauseating. He shows images of the death and destruction the commercial fishing industry has left literally, in its wake.
