For the first time in geological history, the evolutionary sequence is going backwards at an astounding rate. Over fishing is gradually causing a loss in productivity the world over, and the remaining large fish are on the decline. Because of this, Jellyfish are already being exploited as a substitute food source in some parts of the world. If humanity is not careful, phytoplanktons may be the only living organisms left in the ocean.
