Fish or No Fish?
Good question.

We love fish for its health benefits but did you know -

  • Overfishing harms other marine life by disrupting the food chain

  • Oceans are being destroyed. Fishing industries leave a destructive path including a big problem with discarded fishing gear (like this trapped turtle on the left)

  • Sea creatures are accidentally caught and die in fishing nets

  • Fish populations are dwindling and the lack of biodiversity in our oceans caused by overfishing, along with contamination from aquafarms will have disastrous results on our oceans

  • Experts predict fishless oceans by the year 2048

  • Oceans regulate temperature and create 50% of our oxygen on earth 

  • Fish feel pain
