Our Reality: Overfishing

At the current rate of fishing, alongside climate change and pollution, by 2050 all wild seafood stock – everything from tunas to sardines) will collapse, defined as 90% depletion. Overfishing is a direct outcome of commercial fishing as it isn’t targeted and massive amounts of unwanted catch gets discarded and wasted.

DID YOU KNOW

Real sustainable fishing does exist (contrary to the picture Seaspiracy portrayed in the film). Size of fishery and scientific methodology are key: small-scale fishing employs 10x as many people, has a much lower environmental impact (almost completely eliminates bycatches), produces a fraction of the CO2 emissions, compared with industrial fishing. Technology can also help monitor fishstock growth and movement to ensure proper and timed fishing season.
