ArgumentsEdit

  1. 70% of target marine fish species are fished unsustainably. Commercial fishing has wiped out 90% of the world's large fish populations, according to scientists
  2. Deep sea species are now being targeted. Deep sea fishes live longer, grow slower, and have longer time period before becoming mature. Fishing of juveniles quickly depletes the species.
  3. Popular activity in Australia, estimated to be has high as 5 million people by the Normal review. It affects significant numbers of fish.
