Plenty of Fish in the Sea?

It doesn't look that way.
This image shows the biomass of popularly-eaten fish in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1900 and in 2000. Popularly eaten fish include: bluefin tuna, cod, haddock, hake, halibut, herring, mackerel, pollock, salmon, sea trout, striped bass, sturgeon, turbot. Many of which are now vulnerable or endangered.

The Guardian tells how this information was gathered. Link -via TYWKIWDBI

It was me against the world
I was sure that I'd win
The world fought back, punished me for my sins
And they tried to warn me
Of my evil ways
But I couldn't hear what they had to say
I was wrong
Self destruction's got me again

So all of the fish we eat now comes solely from the Western part of the Atlantic? This doesn't seem right. I'm not saying it hasn't declined drastically but this just doesn't look right to me.

Imagine if we relied on roving herds of cattle for our meat and milk. Seems to me we should be using more aquaculture to raise fish and other sea foods.
