In the course we learned about one of the biggest, arguably the biggest, threat facing the world’s oceans today: overfishing. Overfishing is when fish are being taken out of the ocean faster than they can reproduce. This is occurring all over the world, including right off our very own shores. This has a myriad of impact in the marine ecosystem and well beyond.
However, as exploitation of the water increases limited or closed access is implemented and if exploitation still continues then this can lead to a closure of the water to fishing (EDF, 2015b). To avoid such exploitation RBM has become a popular choice worldwide to prevent exploitation. Governments and communities both see it as an effective tool to benefit the environment while keeping in mind fishermen’s economic interest. In most cases government is involved in RBM therefore RBM can be termed as a form of subsidy. If we were to recall the definition of fishery subsidy set forth by FAO it states “Fisheries subsidies are government actions or inactions that are specific to the fisheries industry and that modifies - by increasing or decreasing - the potential profits by the industry in the short-, medium- or long-term.
Newfoundland became the largest exporter of salted codfish. Soon after, multinational companies and their industrial fishing methods were introduced. Industrial fishing methods included the frozen fish industry which used trawlers to scoop large quantities of fish including cod fish from the water bodies. To control the overfishing and growing industrial fishing market, in 1977 the Canadian Government introduced a 200 mile management zone but by that time most of the ecological damage had started. However, during this time other industries like resource-extraction failed, which put pressure on the fishing industry and even the government had to encourage more catching of fish for exports.
Although it may not seem like it, issues concerning pollution in the ocean have a great impact on the lives of humans. The image’s creator most likely took this idea into thought when constructing the ad for the Surfrider foundation (figure 1). By making a connection between sushi and trash in a natural way that seems believable and not too bold, the image is able to appeal emotionally and logically to whoever views it. In addition, since most people are aware of of the pollution that takes place everyday on the planet, the image’s credibility is enhanced. With a unique strategy to draw the attention of a vast audience, the Surfrider Foundation uses the ad pictured above with the intent to educate the public about the effects of pollution, specifically in the ocean.
Those information is telling us everything about the oceans and how the government is helps to protect the oceans from getting polluted so they can save these animals that lives inside of the oceans. The government has set a limit so they can see how polluted is the oceans. This all information that has been written a while ago but it is still relevant to the pollution we have today. The author name is David Bulloch, the author is an industrial chemist. He was an officer for American Littoral Society.

McClure et al. (2008) studied habitat loss of anadromous salmonids because of dam building in west of United States. They found that habitat area declined and changing habitat distribution caused evolution in population of salmonids because of decline and changes in genetic variation. Smaller habitat cause smaller populations, leading to genetic drift.
Their bodies have learned to adapt to its surroundings in order to survive. Despite their appetite and aggressive reputation bull sharks can be docile in certain environments. In the aqua clear waters of the Bahamas, divers regularly interact with crowds of bull sharks (National Geographic News). In Genesis 1:21 it says, "And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that [it was] good."

Exploitation of these essential fishes and pollution of the water could greatly destroy the bank systems and cause a rippling effect among the ecosystem. Knowing how important these bank systems are, they should receive additional protection through management zones. New management actions will help protect fish and stocks, to ensure the stability of recreational and commercial fisheries. To ensure a higher water quality and sustainable habitats, anchoring activities and vessel discharges will be restricted in the management zones. Some management zones containing sensitive wildlife habitats will be restricted to public
The stakeholders in this issue are environmental groups, such as Greenpeace, who firstly advocated for the ban on commercially fishing Pollock in Alaska, as well as the Federal government, who passed the legislature. Their actions have directly led to the endangerment of the Western stock stellar sea lion. Fortunately, they are also the precise people who can remedy the situation. Should my plan of action, the reintroduction of commercial fishing of Western stock Pollock, be effective, the stellar sea lions could achieve their carrying capacity once more. The herring population would grow exponentially, which in turn would cause a major growth in sea lion population.
