I've heard a few theories about it. They died due to the warming, and their population crashed as a result. They fled into deeper waters and were just missed. The Russians and or Chinese overharvested them to extinction. Maybe all three, or none of the three.

Tracking by fish and wildlife groups suggests overfishing is not the problem at all. The best guesses are they migrated quite far from where they usually are or there was a mass die off event. Experts seem to be leaning toward the latter. They're not sure if it's directly related to warming ocean temperatures, if it was an infection or what, but that's where they've landed.
