The Fish, by Elizabeth Bishop is a free verse structured poem that navigates readers through the writer’s vivid perception of a fish that she has just caught. The fish depicted in this writing was allegorical to one’s survival of life’s tumultuous nature that can leave one scarred and battered with harshfully visible remnants.

What Causes Fish Ich fish ich - aquarium fish diseasesFish Ich is caused by a protozoa known as Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, which is capable of multiplying at an extreme fast rate. The enclosed condition of a fish tank and the lack of immunity of bred fish makes it even easier for Fish Ich to spread. The protozoa attaches itself to the outer skin of the fish and begin to feed on the skin and outer tissue.
The speaker continues this vein as she notes “the frightening gills, fresh and crisp with blood” and imagines the fish’s insides, “the dramatic reds and blacks of his shiny entrails”(24-25, 30-31). The illustration presented carries more emotional weight than just one-dimensional and minimal description. The reader gains sympathy for the fish, just as the speaker does, in seeing the unfortunately ugly appearance of the animal. The speaker’s use of imagery also portrays the age of the fish, presenting it having skin “like ancient wallpaper” and being “speckled with barnacles” (11, 16). The seemingly advanced age of the creature
Elizabeth Stone relates the fish to being in a struggle, by stating "He was speckled with barnacles, fine rosettes of lime, and infested with sea lice" (16-19). Stone describes how the fish is in such a bad physical state, because the fish has barnacles growing on him. Stone also states, "The dramatic reds and blacks of his shiny entrails" (30-31).

In Dagupan City, our river system and other bodies of water is teeming with aquatic life specifically offering some of the delectable fishes the country exports and imports. It is home to an abundant number of fish ponds sculpted out of the mangrove swamps. The brackish water, where freshwater and salt water meet, provide perfect breeding environment for the fishes (Bangus Farms in Dagupan City, Pangasinan, n.d.). However, there have been many reports on fish kill in the city alone due to the lack of oxygen and impurities which are caused by the unpurified water fishes tend to dwell in. The rising number of fish kills can be attributed to water pollution which greatly affect the city’s fishing industry specifically fishermen in the locale.
Hence, overfishing threatens coastal nations down to the local level, devastating communities whose dominant sources of labor and revenue hinges on healthy, plentiful stocks of fish. Also, marine life imbalance may affect the targeted fishing of top predators such as billfish, sharks and tuna that eventually disturbs marine communities. In fact, it is causing increased abundance of smaller marine animals at the bottom of the food chain. This in turn has impacts on the rest of the marine ecosystem, such as the increased growth of algae and threats to coral reef health. Overfishing is also closely tied to by catch, another serious marine threat that causes the needless loss of billions of fish, along with marine turtles and
