The Fishers are ignoring the laws and they are fishing the fish in their breeding season, which causes a very big problem and very sharp decline in number of different kinds of fish (Moger, 2016) .

According to Sea Turtles Conservancy there has been a study in 1994 on baby sea turtles, that 63% of all the baby sea turtles had tar inside of their bodies.
Overfishing has drastically changed marine environments in many ways, species have gone extinct, and environments have depleted. If overfishing continues to occur our society won’t have the marine life that we are very dependent on. Ever since the 11th century, overfishing has been a problem. Many fishermen have overused local and regional ecosystems, which led to destruction.This resulted in a major reduction of stocks in fish and marine mammals. After destroying one ecosystem, the fishermen would typically move to the next disregarding the impact they are leaving behind.
Due to the decline of shark populations, the Cownose ray, once a prey animal of the shark, has skyrocketed in population. This had led to a higher demand for their prey food , scallops. The scallops could not replenish it’s stock fast enough, and as a result the scallop population plummeted. This had caused scallop fisheries in North Carolina to close down back in 2004, ruining businesses and jobs. If we, throw a boomerang at the food chain, it’ll only come back and hit us in the head, hard.
A big issue regarding the slow reproduction of sharks is that they cannot keep up with the pace of the fishing. They only reach reproductive age as late as 12-15 years, and combined with the fast pace they are disappearing they are not able to recover the population. As of now 74 shark species are listed as threathened, and 11 of them are critically endendegerd, on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. 3.

Every year, nine billion tons of trash and waste are being dumped into the ocean. Some of this trash stays in the oceans for years, while other trash ends up on our beaches. On beaches, the majority of littered trash is made up of cigarette butts, food wrappers, plastic bottles, and plastic bags. The turtles living in and around our Destin waters mistake these plastic items for food and attempt to eat it. These turtles then either choke and die or are stuck and die from starvation.
Fish stocks all around the world have been declining for the past 50 years. Tuna has been hit by that the hardest with almost 80% of their stocks being overfished. Human impact on the ocean's ecosystems and fish stocks are devastating, some studies suggest that the ocean will be fish free by 2048. An ecosystem is an biological environment that interacts with its organism. Ecosystems are crucial for fish and plants to survive.
This hawksbill turtle is migratory animal and they are found in more than 60 countries, and also seen in the beaches of the UAE. About 80 per cent of the world wide population of this turtle decreased in the past century.
