Overfishing is a serious problem that plagues our oceans and estimates suggest that close to 2 trillion animals are caught in the ocean each year. In order to raise awareness about this cause, an international group of volunteers have created a short

Reasonable people realize when their actions threaten their own lives, where are the reasonable people? European Americans began the process of overfishing as soon as they realizes how plentiful the lakes and streams were on this new continent. The only that's changed in the last couple of hundred years is the levels of industrialization, or ways we have made it worse. We have already effectively killed fresh water lakes, rivers and streams globally, and we are killing the oceans.

Noted. Overfishing has already been on the agenda for decades and fishing quotas have been introduced a long time ago in Europe. Only to be evaded in every possible way by all countries. In addition it has prompted these gigantic fishing factories to be built and send to distant waters to suck-up all marine life irrespective of species.
It's very fortunate that these monstrous ships are denied fishing rights by most countries, but the countries should also be far less lenient with those who overfish their quota and more cooperation between countries is needed to weed industrial overfishing out in general.

One horrible thing is fishes are counted in tones not number like mamals... they are not even treated as a number, making worse the objectisation of non humans.
