I have been trying to work out how many animals are killed by humans annually, worldwide.  It's been really hard to find accurate information. Most information is based on only a certain country. I know that getting something even close to completely accurate is not possible, but I wonder if it would be possible to work out a rough estimate. I want to know how many animals are killed in total, including all industries;

-Fish and bycatch
-Sports and Entertainment

Is there anyone here that can help me? Or does anyone know any reliable sources of statistics? So far the only figure I have is 140 Billion animals killed for food consumption, worldwide, every year. I'm not even sure how accurate this is. If we could make a list of what we know maybe we could narrow it down. Thank you.
