Human Dependence Project

The main issues with overfishing are...

If this keeps happening, in the future fishes are going to be extinct, another problem would be other animals that only eat fish are also going to become extinct because they're is going to have no more food and the entire population of animals could be in risk.

Negative effects on the environment...

A type of a fishes' population may decrease and that means that the animal that eats that kind if fish isn't going to get as much food as it normally does and that might cause competition which could lead to a decrease in that population of animals and it keeps happening with different species.

A new solution would be... Would your solution be able to be implemented now, if not why?

My new solution i would do would be to limit the number of fishes to catch every day so people don't catch too much, and yes my solution would be able to be implemented.
