Description:

If we do not act soon, many marine fish species will disappear. To address this potential catastrophe, we need to reduce: overfishing, where fishermen take more fish than they need; destructive fishing practices, such as bottom trawling where fishermen catch other species in their nets by mistake; and ecosystem pollution from boats or from industrial and agricultural runoff.
