Endangered Fish of the Sea
Axia College of the University of Phoenix
The proposed notion that there is a rapid decrease in certain species of fish that are being caught for food, by commercial fisherman, is coming from a ten-year study. It might sound irrational to some people, but what if there is such a decline in seafood population? What if after a short while, we can actually see an endangered species of tuna or swordfish? According to Dr. Jeremy Jackson, this problem does, in fact, exist and needs to be taken care of before the threat of endangerment is at an irreversible point.
Many different ways exist, or are actually “out there,” that can help to reduce the immense decline of certain species of fish in the ocean today. We just need to find those ways and harness the knowledge we have to take action and prevent any catastrophic events from happening in the process. By catastrophic, I am talking about people losing jobs over the sudden change of fish product quantities and maybe even strikes or riots over these trivial occurrences that could happen and result from controlling fishermen’s fishing habits and product intake from various businesses. Moving in and setting a certain quota for these commercial fishermen to abide by might sound good from the start, as well as easy and effortless, but when you think about it more in depth, it is not so simple and without consequences. A fisherman depends on his or her fish catching abilities to get and stay ahead of the fishing game. The fisherman needs to bring in as much product as he or she can in order to keep their head above water, so to speak, and to meet high demand from clients and businesses to which they sell their product. Limiting the “game” in which people can catch from the vast oceans all around the world can put a damper in business and can ultimately result in bankruptcy for these hard working entrepreneurs. How can we settle this potential hazard of fish species...
