We have become extremely efficient at extracting fish from the oceans. So much so that we are now taking them out at a faster rate than they can replenish themselves. Nearly 30% of global fish stocks were overfished in 2011(SOFIA, 2014).
Bottom trawling, pair trawling, otter trawling
Crab pots, scallop dredging, bottle diving
Longlines, trolling, gill nets
Cyanide, dynamite, electrofishing…
