Abstract


The world’s oceans have experienced many human intervention and have seen negative effects in species and sea plant diversity. The population of sea creatures have been plummeting due to over fishing and negligence."Fish Production peaked in 1996, with global reported catches of 87 million tonnes (source: FAO). This figure could even be as much as 130 million tonnes if discards and illegal, unreported or unregulated (IUU) catches are taken into account (source:SAUP; Pauly Zeller, 2015).Since then, catch has declined sharply, mainly due to the overfishing of many stocks. The resulting loss is estimated at more than one million tonnes every year" (Gascuel, 2003, p.62). Coral reefs are also being damaged year after year. "Coral reefs are being degraded worldwide by several reasons such as; human activities, increases in cyclone intensity, climate warming, bleaching and so on. The increasing frequency and severity of anthropogenic impacts throughout the global ocean have an impact on the coral reefs. This worldwide decline of coral reefs calls for an urgent reassessment of current management practices." (Hoek, 2017, p.59). For this reason we strive to see what degree will human intervention have on the world’s oceans in the near future. Eventually the world’s global food consumption will catch up to the rate that our staple fishes can reproduce. In order to see the rate that global fish consumption has been increasing and how the world has been revolving around marine life this project has collected many datasets that involve fish boats, fish consumption, fish employment, fish prices, and finally fish catches. Further on in the paper the datasets will be analyzed deeper and show the relevance to how fish consumption may be increasing in a unsustainable rate.
