Fishing for Sustainable Practices to Conserve Fisheries

U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization an estimated 53 percent of fisheries are considered fully exploitedβ€”harvested to their maximum sustainable levelsβ€”with no room for expansion in production. Population growth and a higher demand for dietary protein are putting increasing pressure on depleted stocks and threatened ecosystems.
