Overfishing is catching too many fish at once, so the breeding population becomes too depleted to recover. Overfishing often goes hand-in-hand with wasteful types of commercial fishing that haul in massive amounts of unwanted fish or other animals, which are discarded.

air pollution

There are several causes of air pollution, most of which are man-made. A major contributor of air pollution is the emissions from vehicles and industrial factories. Cars on the road cause smog, and companies who use or produce chemicals as a byproduct of their industries emit chemicals into the air that affect land, animals and humans.


Products used in everyday home tasks may emit toxic fumes that are harmful in environments that are not well-ventilated. Finally, there are sources of air pollution that are natural and not man-made. This includes the dust and smog from natural events such as volcanoes and dust storms
