  • Death of oceans
    • Fishing factory in Massachusetts that fishes for table fish e.g. cod.
      • Employs loads of people-reason for overfishing and hard to campaign against it.
      • 90000 kilos of fish are exported every day from one plant.
    • Companies are having to source stock from further away than ever.
      • 85% is imported from other parts of the US or other countries entirely.
      • Countries such as Indonesia, China, Vietnam and Russia
    • Technology has caused- large factory ships, nexts as long as 60km and sonar.
      • Increased transport and speed and styrofoam cooling boxes-fish available anywhere
    • In 50 years 90% of top predators e.g. tuna, shark and swordfish have been fished.
      • Predators reproduce more slowly so are more vulnerable under intense fishing.
      • Removing a species in a particular trophic level can affect the rest of the species in that web.
        • Could lead to  an increase in smaller organisms such as bacteria that could negatively affect ocean life.

  • If it continues then by 2050 comercial fishing will be over
