Falling fish stocks, the murder of Cecil the Lion and decreasing biodiversity are all symptoms of our species impact on the planet. A new study shows that whilst we predate herbivores (assuming we exclude the domestic meat industry) at a rate comparable to other large carnivores, we predate large carnivores and fish at a much greater rate. For fish we catch at a rate 14 times greater than any other predator and for large carnivores the rate is 9 times that of any natural predation.
