Another solution to overfishing is to create more protected areas for marine life. Marine protected areas restrict human activities in defined areas. Organizations experienced in establishing these protected areas say that the evidence validates their efficiency in enabling fish stocks that have gone down and ecosystems to recover and restock (“Marine Protected Areas”, globalpartnershipforoceans.org) This problem needs to be taken care of if we want to keep enjoying fish. Overfishing happens all over the world. All areas of the world are facing the soon to come extinction of fish. Every day, billions of people around the world rely on fish and seafood as a direct source of protein.
