Industrial fishing is the most effective killing machinery ever developed by humans. Everywhere on this planet floating factories are emptying our oceans at an increasing rate. 87% of the global fish stocks are believed to be fully used or overfished, severely threatening the sustainability of the marine environment and the world’s largest food resource. This makes global overfishing one of the most pressing sustainability issues of our time.
