Every day these people eat fish for dinner not knowing that in about 50 years there may be no more fish, the cause of this, overfishing. Overfishing means that fish are being harvested before they can reproduce.
These boats are taking more and more fish every day and not leaving enough to reproduce which is why fish depletion is happening. As stated in an article called "Threat 1: Overfishing" "Overfishing occurs when fish and other marine species are caught faster than they can reproduce."
One poor fish species that was severely depleted was the orange roughy the case study shows that it takes a long time to reproduce because it takes a long time to mature because it lives up to 150 years since it takes long to reproduce making it an easy target to overfishing
