Fishing is a way of life for numerous Filipinos. Unfortunately, threats to marine ecosystems and an overall deepening crisis engulfing Philippine fisheries has hampered that livelihood. Studies reveal that global fish stocks may be exhausted by 2048. Fish stocks fast being depleted especially with the use of state-of-the-art spotting devices has raised alarm bells. In the meantime, fishing nets often entangle other non-target marine species like sharks, seals, whales, and sea turtles. Browse through the news-feature article on "The Emptying of Our Oceans" for an overview on the overexploitation and depletion of fish stock and other forms of marine biodiversity.
