Threats to Earth : over fishing & poaching


When more fish are caught than what the population can replace through natural reproduction, overfishing occurs. Many around the world rely on fish for the source of protein. Some causes of overfishing are because of open access fisheries, poor fisheries management, and lack of protected area. The impacts that are resulted for these causes will lead to marine life imbalance, decrease food security and economic loss. Even though many fishers are aware of the situation there are other problems too.
In my opinion, government should control the amount of fish each fishers catch so that there will be lesser problem of overfishing. even though there are problem such as pirate fishing which cannot be control, the fishers could help and inform legal fisheries if they knew who are the ones.
