Abstract

Overfishing extremely limits biodiversity and corrupts the whole aquatic food chain in the ocean. About one third of fishing is illegal, and most companies use bottom trawlers, a special type of net, which catches tons of bycatch and destroy the plant life, and homes of other aquatic species, on the ocean floor. By banning these bottom trawlers the fish population will return to the levels before commercialized fishing. If we return the fish population levels to normal, it will boost the economy, because there will be more fish to sell, and will save the ecosystem of the oceans, which is extremely fragile and if is thrown out of balance can wreak havoc on the whole planet.
