Unsustainable Fishing

Unsustainable Fishing

Imagine the world without fish?

About 60 years ago seas were fished to a depth of 50 metres, however with advanced technology such as the Geographical Information System (GIS) and super trawlers with deep sea long-line fishing equipment, oceans are now fished to depths of over 200 metres.

The World Bank’s Director of Agriculture and Environmental Services, Juergen Voegele, said that ‘supplying fish sustainably — producing it without depleting productive natural resources and without damaging the precious aquatic environment — is a huge challenge.’
