I don't remember the name or the author of the book but I read it in Thailand sometime before 1987.

It opens with the protagonist, a scientist?, who warns that the plankton in the sea is dying off and will soon approach apocalyptic proportions. In the end civilization breaks down and human kind reverts to cannibalism. Set in the USA. It NOT "The Last Gasp" by Trevor Hoyle.
