The sad truth about the state of our oceans and the industrial fishing.
Let's look at some of the problems with the industrial fishing industry.
The depletion of fish in our oceans due to overfishing is staggering. Source: Myers RA, Worm B. Rapid worldwide depletion of predatory fish communities. Nature. 2003; 423: 280-283.
The oceans are maxed out since long ago, and the amount of farmed fish is increasing to meet global demand. Source: Food & Agriculture Organization of the United States. (2020). The state of world fisheries and aquaculture.
Bycatch is when species other than the targeted species is caught and usually discarded. Bottom trawling is the main offender.
With longline fishing, a lot of birds are also among the bycatch.
Farmed fish (aquaculture) is not the solution. It still takes a lot of wild-caught fish to feed the salmon, for example.
The best way to save the fish is to not kill the fish. A plantbased diet is the number one solution to save our collapsing ecosystems.
