We conclude that marine biodiversity loss is increasingly impairing the ocean's capacity to provide food, maintain water quality, and recover from perturbations. Yet available data suggest that at this point, these trends are still reversible.

I was looking for this 2006 paper from in Science about the collapse of the world's fish stocks that attracted quite a lot of press when I came across this relatively new site - which has a nice clean design and a lot of interesting (although often depressing) links and articles. Don't miss the bottom trawling satellite images.
