Everyone needs the oceans to be protected
MetadataShow full item record
Ensuring that these ecosystems stay healthy is getting harder, as the oceans absorb excess carbon dioxide and overfishing escalates, aided by advances in deep-water fishing technology. Carbon dioxide turns the water more acidic, threatening the survival of shellfish. Hundreds of marine species are now endangered, and populations of large predatory fish are dropping. A new satellite-driven interactive tool called Global Fishing Watch will enable governments to track tens of thousands of fishing vessels worldwide and detect illegal fishing.
