FISHING by amrita

1. MONEY AND BACKGROUND INFO

  • Approximately $6 billion in fish and seafood in 2015.
  • Over $1 billion is made in the aquaculture industry.
  • Aquaculture is the fastest growing food industry in the world.
  • The primary fishery output in Canada in 1995 is valued at $2.1 billion.
  • More than 45,000 commercial fish harvesters work Canada's waters from coast to coast.
  • Most fishing industries are located on the Atlantic, from Nunavut to the American border.
  • 76,000 Canadians make their living from fishing or related activities.

2. METHODS - EXTRACTING, DEVELOPING, PRODUCING

  • Production is distributed among the Pacific (BC and Yukon, 20%), Central (Prairie Provinces and Ontario, 5%) and Atlantic (Quebec, Maritime Provinces and Newfoundland, 75%) regions.
  • Currently, Nova Scotia is the leading province (30% of total production).
  • The primary fishery output in Canada in 1995 is valued at $2.1 billion.
  • Overall production increased over time since aquaculture was introduced in Canada, the number of different species has also increased.
  • After some fish are caught they are sent to factories to continue working on them to provide us with clean food etc..

3. ISSUES/PROBLEMS/IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT

  • Some issues with fishing in Canada would be extinction of fish from all the fish being killed and taken from their habitats
  • Leading on from fish being killed - that means that food chains will be impacted from animals going extinct since it all has an impact on each other in the aquatic system.
  • Over fishing - 80% of the worlds fisheries are fully to over exploited, and/or depleted - which leads to two problems.. We are losing species as well as entire ecosystem.
  • Fish stocks are decreasing globally, which leads to fishing methods becoming extreme.
  • Availability of fish , there won't be enough fish for us to eat as well as extinction like I said before.

4. SOLUTIONS / SUSTAINABILITY

  • Some solutions for the problems/impacts in the fish industry would be :
  • Less fishing - less fishing would help solve extinction of fish because that means less fish would be getting caught/killed.. with less fish being killed/caught that also means food chains are being saved since a smaller amount of fish are dying.
  • Stop over fishing - we need to stop over fishing because if we over fish it will lead to us having no fish for us in the future ( extinction )
  • As more fish are dying it slowly is affecting our ecosystem at the same too because it affects other animals which also leads to other animals getting affected.
  • Being careful with fish we are fishing since we don't know if they have poisoning / infections in them that us humans would not want to spread.
