Pretty sure it'll affect more than starfish in the scenario you're describing.

there aren't going to be any fish at all soon.

I was born on the water and have lived within walking distance to the sea for 40+ yrs. I had my own boat at 13yo and was trusted to use it without my parents present. I grew up covered in salt and smelling like fish. I am an avid fisherman and have spent many years in pursuit of game fish as well as commercial fishing both fin fish and shell fish. IMHO we are at or past the tipping point, I doubt we can recover. I think it is to late already. The fish are gone.
