For every kg of shrimp caught, 9 kgs of marine life is wasted and thrown back into the ocean to sink to the bottom. When purchasing fish or shrimp, only buy what you need or buy from a sustainable source.
How you can help
If people buy fish from sustainable source the mount of fish taken out of the ocean will be reduced and the more people that take part in this act the more impact we will have. The biggest supporter of overfishing is you, the demand for fish is so huge that fisherman catch more and more to meet the needs and wants of the public, only buy what you need, 27 million tonnes of fish are thrown…
I hope the department of fisheries clamp down on the security and management of catch limits, to reinforce the importance of overfishing and how much damage we are causing
