What is the effect of Industrial fishing?
The footprint left by the fishing industry is staggering. More than 55 percent of the ocean surface is covered by industrial fishing. That’s more than four times the area covered by agriculture. Industrial fishing has been responsible for harmful environmental impacts. Overfishing is depleting our marine life, many animals like dolphins and sea turtles are products of bycatch, and the massive vessels used require large amounts of CO2-producing fuel.
