In the TV series known as “Informed,” celebrated and popular actor Rob Lowe, uses his fame and influence to discuss and educate the public on important issues facing the modern society. In the latest episode of “Informed,” Rob discusses overfishing and highlights its consequences.
One of the most obvious consequences of overfishing is that there will be no more fish for humans after a given period. However, the consequences go beyond the lack of fish for man. Studies show that unsustainable fishing practices have the ability to destroy the marine ecosystem and distort the entire food chain in the waters. When the number of fish in the oceans reduces, fisheries will face closures, a factor that will result in loss of livelihoods for a significant number of people who depend on the business. Marine ecologists say that when there is constant fishing of a particular species, the species is likely to become extinct. Lastly, with big companies using large fisheries that stay for months in deep seas, the oil spills and discharge of chemicals and solid elements eventually result in pollution.
