Is fishing going to make all the fish scarce one day?

With so many fishing commercially and for fun/sports wouldn't that make fish almost used up. Don't forget the whales or sharks that eat fish too. They sell seafood but not all of it gets eaten when it is so expensive. Shrimp is 9 or more a pound. That's insane. It spoils quick too.

    Sometimes, yes; usually, no. More often, it is changes in the habitat, whether natural or manmade. For a natural cause, look up the history of tilefish. There was a massive die-off years ago. They have since come back. Generally, what happens is that, when there are few of a particular species, fishermen go after something else, until the population recovers.

    As far as the cost of shrimp goes, buy just what you need, a short time before you need it. And smaller shrimp cost less than the large ones. They are just as good, unless you are serving shrimp cocktail.

    There are world wide restrictions on the amount of fish that can be caught.

    I suggest you do your research particularly on quotas in the EU.
