What is Sustainable Fishing?​

Sustainable fishing means leaving enough fish in the ocean, respecting habitats, and ensuring people who depend on fishing can maintain their livelihoods. This guarantees there will be populations of ocean and freshwater wildlife for the future. 

Aquatic habitats are home to countless species of fish and invertebrates. Most of these invertebrates are consumed as food, while others are harvested for economic reasons (e.g. oysters that produce pearls used in jewelry). All over the world, in many diverse cultures, seafood is seen as an important source of protein and healthy fats. 

People have fished to feed families and local communities. This demand for seafood worldwide, along with advances in technology, has led to fishing practices that are depleting fish and shellfish populations around the world. Fishing practices remove more than 77 billion kilograms (170 billion pounds) of wildlife from the sea every year. This has bred fear in scientists that continuing to fish at this rate may soon result in a collapse of the world’s fisheries. Sustainable fishing exists as a way for us to regulate these practices and to continue relying on the ocean as an important food source.

*We love fishing while trying to preserve Mother Earth. 

We hope you do too, so we recommend using Barbless Hooks for Fishing, Fishing Nets and practicing  Catch And Release Fishing… That is what we do 🙂
