Huge Fishing Boats Take Too many Fish Away: What do you think?

National Geographic is up in arms. I knew that already from reading theri recent magazine about the huge amount of over fishing worlwide; and particularly from Europe traveling down to the coast of Africa. Huge trollers fill their boats with fish literally.

There is no discretion as to which groups to save or anything; just a huge amount of fish killed, processed, put on ice . All of the fish that cannot be used is just churned out the back of the boat in big bloody fashion...

National Geographic has a group of ocean experts. they say that the continual huge amount of fishing may mean that we literally run out of fish.

Beyond that, many people in Africa on the coast who historically have lived from fishing are now without fish. thye ahve been forced to live ona very meagre supply of small fish.

What do you think about this?

Let us know!TY!

I have not read enough on the subject to really say what I think. I do however believe that you should take only what you can eat.

Many areas do have regulations on that sort of thing, so many that is what they need to do here.  Often times the fees paid by boats go back in and support the wildlife so something like that could be beneficial for this area.
