The collapse of the marine ecosystem would result in the a massive amount of loss in fish stocks, resulting in the loss of business and the starvation of many people around the world that rely on fish as their major supply of food. (The main cause of overfishing is large fishing companies
“The toxic algae bloom in Lake Erie that provoked last weekend 's tap water ban in Toledo, Ohio—where nearly half a million people were told not to use water for drinking, cooking, or bathing—is a preview of similar problems to come around the world, scientists say, thanks in part to climate change.” (Jane Lee). There could be many fish killed if there is another algae bloom. The water crisis is caused by warm water and runoff. If there is another water crisis it will affect many things. Water crises are bad in many ways so don’t pollute the
1. 90-100 million tons are killed and wiped off the planet each year. Consisting of some of the most beautiful creatures on the planet. Fish are a primary food source to 3.5 billion people worldwide and the depletion of the species is leaving millions of people hungry. Over fishing is a huge problem that needs to be stopped.
A Global Problem: Food Waste From a global perspective, the world is wasting food at a staggering rate, resulting in the lost potential for feeding the disadvantaged as well as impacting the natural order of wildlife and contributing to climate change. Consequently, through this tragedy the world has the opportunity to find methods of reducing food waste. The world 's annual value of food wasted totals 750 billion dollars. This costly food waste comes in two main factors, waste and loss. Factor one includes food waste by restaurants throwing away uneaten food.
This makes boat owners very vulnerable to a non-profit year. On average, a boat fishing for King Crab makes around $850 million. Boat owners get 50% of that which leaves them with $425 million with expenses still remaining (Alaskan Seafood, 1). “Owners are accumulating costs of about $1,000 a day for such expenses as insurance, mortgage fees and food for crew members” (Deadliest Catch' Fishery, 1). Holding the boats just days before the season starts, and the accumulating cost of sitting at the docks, has frustrated many boat owners.
“As the population rises, the world 's water usage will rise. Many areas of the world already suffer from a lack of fresh water,” (Population Control 3). If the world runs out of freshwater, humanity will plunge into chaos. Humanity needs water to survive, and that is a fact. Relationships between countries will be broken apart over disputes for water.
Some pros of this policy is that they have more jobs to offer with less people. More people can get a job because they don’t have millions of people fighting over a few jobs. Another pro is that with only one child per couple, the population shouldn’t grow as fast. This one is not necessarily always true, but when you think about it having one child per couple should make the population less than three children per person. Another pro is that they should have more food for everyone.
Over 100 million sharks are murdered by humans every year, and it’s a high number for any animal but it’s endangering to sharks because they don’t breed very quickly due to their biological composition (NewsCurrents Read to Know). Sharks reproduce very slowly and they can’t keep up with the rate that humans are killing them off at. With that inbalance, they’re getting closer and closer to extinction everyday, but with a ban on finning that would cut down over half of those casualties and keep the sharks from dying off. Consequently, because they’re being killed off in large unmoderated amounts there a species of sharks already extinct and in "Bad to the Bone", written by Michael A. Rivlin, he writes “Because of such biological profiles, most shark fisheries have experienced brief booms, followed by long busts. To take one notorious example, in 1961 Norwegian longliners began catching porbeagle sharks in the Northwest Atlantic.
It’s horrendous that while living in one of the wealthiest countries in the world we still see children starving. “One in six youngsters are at a risk of hunger because of limited or uncertain access to nutritious food” (“An Invisible Hunger”). This shows that countless houses in the U.S don’t have the basic essentials to feed a child. There are millions of ravenous kids in the U.S and there are very catastrophic effects because of this. “More than 17 million children are suffering from hunger in the U.S” (“Ending Childhood Hunger in America”).
Much of the trash such as glass and plastic can be recycled at port, but if it is not recycled, it is incinerated and then dumped at sea, contributing to the floating plastic debris that has a serious effect on a wide range of marine organisms. According to the Coast Guard there is more the one million birds and 100,000 marine mammals that die each year from ingesting or becoming entangled in plastic debris. In addition to this waste, industries onboard generate waste from photo shops, print shops, x-ray development, batteries, paint, and solvents. These toxic wastes have been known to cause death and reproductive failure in a number of marine
