The Problems Oceans
Environmental issues concerning seafood are many and varied. They include:
Overfishing: Removing too many fish from the sea and not leaving enough to re-populate in time for the next catch.
Bycatch: Removing animals from the ocean that were not intended to be part of the catch, such as sea turtles, dolphins, seabirds and sponges.
Habitat Degradation: Fishing or producing seafood in areas that affect the quality of water, reefs and other ocean habitats that then negatively impacts sea life.
