Our growing demand for fish is putting immense pressure on our seas. Global human consumption of seafood has doubled since 1980 and it continues to rise.
The impact in numbers is shocking. Today, around 2.7 trillion fish are caught every year, up to five million killed every minute, by commercial fishing fleets. Close to 90% of fish is either overfished or fished to its maximum limit. The largest trawl nets are so large they could swallow whole cathedrals, devastating 3.9 billion acres of seafloor, annually.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
