What is overfishing doing to our planet?
Severe depletion of fish:
In many parts of the world, the increase in commercial fishing has resulted in vast depletions of nature’s stocks of fish, with many species either depleted or facing depletion.
Damage to the Ecosystem:
Overfishing damages more than fish populations, it can reduce the survival chances of the entire ecosystem.
Stress on Fishing Communities:
As fish stocks are depleted, fishing fleets are moving into areas where the local economy depends on small fishing concerns, putting stress on the people who for generations have fished the surrounding waters in a way that did not deplete the stocks.
Solutions to overfishing
Solutions to overfishing include making sure that seafood companies only use seafood that has been legally caught and that the practices are in place to eliminate or minimize damage to the habitat and other species.
