how is this wildlife affected?
Many fishers are aware of the need to safeguard fish populations and the marine environment, however illegal fishing and other regulatory problems still exist. WWF works with stakeholders to reform fisheries management globally, focusing on sustainable practices that conserve ecosystems, but also sustain livelihoods and ensure food security.
does this over-fishing affect us in League City? if not could it ever reach us?
Over-fishing does not affect us in league city. I feel as if it could because we are surrounded by water.
TROUBLED WATERS - DOCUMENTARY ABOUT IMPACTS OF OVERFISHING. (2015)
Are People affected by over-fishing?
Yes, people buy fish that can be contaminated by the ocean's dirty ways. Fish (seafood) is a very popular food, yet still can be dangerous.
Who or what is the cause of over-fishing?
We, humans, are the cause of over-fishing. We pollute the water with oils and trash, when we could just find a trash can. So, we, humans, cause over-fishing.
A new study indicates that "co-management" -- a collaborative arrangement between local communities, conservation groups, and governments -- provides one solution to a vexing global problem: overfishing.
My own solutions
If we were to transport oil in cars instead of boats, or if we were to put more trash cans at the beach. And make it illegal to litter, and put cameras to know who to fine.
