Sustainability Issue: Fishing
Solution Suggested: Reduce Population
Short Explanation  Over fishing is already part of of our lives with fishing quotas everywhere.
Full reason for rating.


Fishing territories are already causing conflicts around the world. The fishing rights around the UK and France was a major issue during Brexit negotiations and are still being contested.
Exploration for oil and other minerals pose a further threat to fish populations. Submarines seem to be implicated in whale beaching because of interference with their sonar. As demands on resources increase, this will become a much bigger problem and could lead to wars. Population reduction will reduce demand and therefore reduce the need to exploit the sea any further.
