Looking at the current conditions, we can’t be certain that we will be able to enjoy wild fish the same way as we do now in the future. The oceans are in bad shape. Many fish stocks are overfished, and harmful fishing practices have caused serious damage to marine life. Also, our seas have become warmer and flooded with plastics in recent years. This is disastrous for sea life and for the 200 million people worldwide who depend on the sea as their only source of food and income. These fishing communities fear what’s happening in our waters right now, especially for people in developing countries who rely solely on fishing. When there’s no more fish to catch, they lose their income and their food resources. Many small-scale and traditional fisheries provide a living for a large part of their populations. Globally, 10-12% of the workforce depends on fishing, of which 90% are in developing countries. Competition from large industrial fleets (often owned by multinationals) makes surviving extra difficult for small-scale fisheries.
