Think peak oil is bad?   Look at "Peak Caviar."

Actually, no kidding, it has some disturbing implications for peak oil.

From the article Peak Caviar, by Ugo Bardi:

        "  "Peak Caviar" is another confirmation of how common the "Hubbert" behavior is.
It doesn't matter if a resource is theoretically renewable, as sturgeons
and whales are. If sturgeons or whales are killed much faster than
they can reproduce, then they behave as a non renewable resource;
just as crude oil."


"As you see, the declining phase of the production
curve is much faster than the growth phase. In my
interpretation (Bardi 2005), these asymmetric curves
appear when people make a large effort to continue
increasing production. By means of increasing effots
and using the best technologies, it is possible to make
production continue its growth beyond its "natural" peak
at midpoint. This increase, necessarily, is paid with a
more rapid fall after the peak. Renato Guseo (2008)
and his coworkers have modeled the same behavior
for the world's crude oil production."
