My Thoughts About Illegal Fishing

I been fishing since I was seven years old, I love it a lot and I don't want it to be taken away from me. When I learned about illegal fishing, I didn't like it at all, and I still don't I want it to stop. I believe that there is a way to stop this crime for good. If the U.N. Focuses more on stopping illegal fishing, I believe that it will end, so that fisherman around the world can catch more fish and have a good time.
