So that is what I think about over fishing in Hawaii and why I think it is a major problem and how I believe we can prevent all our fish being taken before it is too late, so now I hope we can all come together as an island and work together a keep our fish population going up and not down and I think we can do it we just need to work together and take care of our
Is hunting for sport (not food or survival) morally justified? At one point of time hunting was very crucial for survival but now some would say hunting is nothing more than a violent form of recreation that the majority of hunters do not need for subsistence. Those who support hunting may say it does more good than bad for economic reasons. Outsiders are more concerned with the pain and suffering and loss of life endured by the animals. A study conducted by a Yale professor concluded that 60% of Americans disapprove of sport hunting and about one-third of Americans favor a total ban on hunting (Achor 138). I believe hunting animals for sport and not for survival is completely wrong and should be illegal.
Blackfish (2013) is an American documentary film directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite and produced by Manuel V. Oteyza. The documentary primarily concerns the controversy of captured Killer Whales at the theme park Sea World, primarily that of Tilikum, an Orca responsible for the deaths of 2010 SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau and two other individuals.

Since its release at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival Blackfish has achieved both critical acclaim and caused controversy regarding SeaWorld 's treatment of its animals as well as retaliation from SeaWorld as to the legitimacy of the film 's claims.
Sharks are driven to extinction because people want to eat their fins which serves no purpose to humans; shark fins have no nutritional value or serve any medicinal purpose. Finning is the inhumane practice of cutting off all of the shark’s fins and throwing the body back into the ocean. The sharks either drown are eaten by bigger fish or starve to death. Soon sharks are going to become extinct because of the 100 millions of sharks killed every year. If shark finning continues it will throw off the biodiversity of earth.
Examples of negative local practices are the usage of poison/explosives and overfishing. Overfishing as the name suggests, is fishing a certain fish to an excess amount, decimating the population. This could put multiple organisms’ populations at risk and populations may possibly go extinct. Another practice that negatively impacts the ocean is the usage of poison and explosives. Obviously, the poison that is used in fishing (mainly cyanide) is harmful for the ocean because it may poison other fish over the years. Also, the usage of explosives are harmful because they all kill off things such as coral, and the damaging of coral reefs can take decades before it reverts back to its normal state. To reduce or totally eliminate the way these local practices are impacting the environment, we can place restrictions on what can be used in fishing, and how much you can catch. For example, we can limit fishers to only 10 fish a day. This would give the fish plenty of time to reproduce and would keep the population of the fish steady. Also, we can ban the usage of poisons and explosives. This would stop destroying and polluting the ocean. Instead, we would allow fishers to do other things that would catch fish without such a huge impact on the
When we are children we grow up watching movies that transport us to another world. Take Disney movies, typically Disney movies transport you to a faraway land with interesting individuals that tend to on adventures; take Disney’s motion animated picture The Little Mermaid, within this movie we are given the opportunity to see how living underwater is “better”. That if you living on land there are many problems you generally would not find under the sea. Although this is an animated motion picture utilized to promote happiness in younger generations something interesting to note is that not everything under the water is better. Even though we have words such as: “calm”, “gentle”, “rebirth” etc. that are associated with the sea; within recent years the sea and everything within it are changing. There has been an increase in the demand for fish, with such high demand the fish industry are utilizing extensive measures in order to meet said high demand.

Great white sharks are the biggest predatory fish in the ocean and they can grow to about 15 feet in size, although larger than 20 feet have been seen. Their name comes from the white underbellies of the sharks and their bodies are designed to blend in with the seabed. The great whites have powerful tails which makes them excellent swimmers that can travel up to 24 km/h. They have many rows of triangular shaped teeth and have a great sense of smell and even their body can sense electromagnetic fields produced by animals. They mainly eat sea lions, small toothed whales and sea turtles. These sharks can be found in cold coastal waters around the world, scientists are not sure how many

When traveling any distance at all to go fly fishing, it helps to have a fly rod that packs into a small storage tube. Trying to do anything with a standard two piece rod is difficult. When backpacking it catches everything overhead and when flying it is awkward and annoying. There are many considerations that need to be taken into account when looking for the best travel fly rod from how long do you want it to be during travel, how thick during travel, and how well you want it to fish while fishing.

Salmon fishing is a sport that that has many participants from around the world. Yet some organizations are making it much harder and less fun. Also, many animals are killing off salmon. I believe we need to fix this and come up with a solution. Fishing is definitely one of the most widely spread sport and is used as a way of life. Many people live off fishing whether it’s catching and selling fish or catching and eating fish. Anyways, the reasons why I think we need to come up with a solution for this crisis is because we have seals and sea lions killing off salmon, ODFW making rules that makes it tougher to catch salmon, and we have dams that are raising the water lever.
According to world wildlife organisation, overfishing occurs when more fish are caught than the population can replace through natural reproduction. Gathering as many fish as possible may seem like a profitable practice, but overfishing has serious consequences. The results may not only affect the balance of life in the oceans, but also the social and economic well-being of the coastal communities who depend on fish for their way of life.
Fishing is a significant activity that brings people of all ages together to bond, have fun, as well as learns. It serves camaraderie among friends, family, and colleagues.
