Some of us won’t care about what is happening worldwide, until it hits home this story is about a community of recreational fishermen who are losing their lively hood and 10s of thousands of people losing their jobs as a result of overfishing. It gives an inside of not only what commercial fishing is doing to marine life also only how it’s destroying the lives of local fishermen. Small artisan fishing boats found themselves competing with trawlers but they had no chance as large trawlers where built to stay longer out at sea and designed to catch large quantities of fish. This which leaves artisan fishing boats with very little to fish for.

Fisheries in Newfoundland in Canada put 40, 00 people out of a job this is relevant to my because it shows how serious over fishing to people lively hoods.
