Exactly! And humans also think that overfishing is impossible because fish lay millions of eggs. But little do they know, that only one to six survive!
Wow, only 1-6 out of a million fish babies survive out of a million?!
Meanwhile, fishermen were noticing changes in the ocean ecosystem. But they didn't think it was their fault.
The fish are getting smaller!
It's all the foreigners fault!
If this is such a big problem, why can't we just stop fishing altogether?
While that would seem like a logical solution, fish is a very popular food for humans, so no one knows what would happen if humans were removed from the food chain.
There has to be a way to stop this from happening!
We have to tell everyone about this!
Fish could go extinct very soon because of overfishing.
There is ONE way... its sustainable fishing. This is fishing while maintaining the fish population.
Hook and line fishing is a possible solution to this problem. It will let fishermen keep a stable life whilst catching less fish. It has been shown that fish caught with this method are more expensive than fish caught with nets!
So, he got all the fishermen in town together and told them about the dangers of overfishing.
