Overfishing occurs when more fish are caught than the population can replace through natural reproduction this will cause serious consequence.This will cause an imbalance life in the oceans and affecting coastal communities economically.More than 85 percent of the world's fisheries have been pushed to or beyond their biological limits and are in need of strict management plans to restore them. WWF works with stakeholder to sustain livelihoods and ensure food security.Current rules and regulations are not strong enough to limit fishing capacity to a sustainable level.Many governments still continue to subsidize their fleets, allowing unprofitable operations to subsist, and overfishing to occur.Today’s worldwide fishing fleet is estimated to be up to two and a half times the capacity needed to catch what we actually need.
In my opinion , government of every country should broadcast a message about overfishing to all the residents. To allow the residents to know the consequences of overfishing.This can create an awareness among people. Government should stop continuing to subsidise their fleets as this will cause more people to go to the sea to capture fishes.By having less subsides lesser people will go out into the sea to fish.Every countries should come together to reduce the increasing rate of overfishing.
