Overfishing is
the depleting of fish stocks, my goal is to put a stop to the overfishing. It is important that we do so and act fast as we are out fishing the fish stocks much faster then they can replenish.

Information here: According to the United Nations, 17% of fish stocks worldwide are currently overexploited; 52% are fully exploited; and 7% are depleted. This means that only an estimated 20% of worldwide fish stocks are not already at or above their capacity. Approximately 90% of fish stocks of large predatory fish are already gone, as overfishing has disproportionately targeted the largest fish at the top of the food chain. A study of catch data published in 2006 in the journal Science grimly predicted that if fishing rates continue apace, all the world's fisheries will have collapsed by the year 2048. Fishing nets catch far more than intended Coral Reefs which are home to 25% of all marine life are being destroyed. The reefs grow at a rate of 0.3 cm to 10 cm a day. What you see now has been growing for the last 5,000 to 10,000 years.  61% of the worlds fish stocks are fished out  10% of fish caught in oceans get dumped back in Overfishing is the result of large demand of seafood Many types of tuna and mackerel are the fish at the heist risk Examples of overfishing exist in areas such as the North Sea, the Grand Banks of Newfoundland and the East China Sea. In these locations, overfishing has not only proved disastrous to fish stocks but also to the fishing communities relying on the harvest.  

A major change is required as we are drastically over fishing our main means of seafood supplies. Many species of tuna, mackerel, squid and a few other species of fish are become more and more scarce and by the year 2048 there will be virtually no more fish to eat.

Overfishing is interrupting the food chain, the fish that we are targeting to catch and eat are mostly predators and in targeting these there population is becoming smaller and smaller resulting in to many pests in the sea an not enough predators to balance out the numbers.

Fishing down, as we are finding les and less eating fish on the top water we are beginning to fish down (fishing deeper) to find the eating fish. The result of this is that we are getting lots of bycatches and killing more fish and marine life then needed. According to the United Nations, 17% of fish stocks worldwide are currently overexploited; 52% are fully exploited; and 7% are depleted. This means that only an estimated 20% of worldwide fish stocks are not already at or above their capacity. Approximately 90% of fish stocks of large predatory fish are already gone, as overfishing has disproportionately targeted the largest fish at the top of the food chain.  

Overfishing is primarily based on the how many fish we are killing but overfishing is also resulting in major loss of reef, coral reefs are home to over 25% of the fish population and the coral reefs are dying at a rate of 3-10cm per day. And this is taking many fish species out of their habitat. And on top of that we are overfishing so we are burning the candle from both ends

In order to keep our marine life safe it would be advised to only purchase sustainably farmed fish such as barramundi and salmon if
