In a recently published paper, Worm et al. [Impacts of biodiversity loss on ocean ecosystem services. Science 2006;314:787-90.] project "the global collapse of all taxa currently fished" by 2048. Using their criteria and data, this paper shows that the number of not-collapsed fisheries actually increased over time to a plateau of about 5600 in 1985-2003. Furthermore, if trends are projected into the future, more than half of the world's fisheries would always be in a recovered state.
