Fisheries covers a wide range of activities. For some people, nothing is more fun activities than walking down to the lake or river, put bait on the hook, threw it far into the water, then wait for a sensational strike of water predators (crocodiles certainly not something to be expected here).
Fishing activity looks like a reasonable and simple to do, however the actual fishing is one of the world’s fisheries activities, which if examined in more detail, then this is quite a complex activity that has implications for biology, economics, and even politics.
Fisheries in general are all sorts of human activities related to the utilization and management of marine living resources. This could refer to man-made facility for fish farming or can also refer to a geographical location. Fisheries can legally be defined as the legal right to manage and utilize natural resources in the waters of a particular area with a defined time period.
Today the fishery has become a huge industry and plays an important role in the world economy. Many major countries are building a large fishing industry, such as the United States, South Korea, China, Russia, and of course Japanese the land of sushi. These countries are not only sufficient stock in their country, but also supplies stock to other countries in need.
Growth and development of the fishing industry is very closely related to the health of aquatic ecosystems, and of course the quality of the water. The development of the fishing industry so rapidly, should be coupled with the implementation of measures friendly to nature, if not please say goodbye to fisheries and possibly to life.
In some regions or countries, the people make fishing as a major source of food and a major source of their income. This field is very promising, the industry generates billions of dollars each year. This led to large-scale fishing, as a consequence will reduce the amount of fish populations. Some reached very alarming levels, for example, the population of whales and sharks are currently on the verge of extinction.
Rightly made of offshore fishing regulations are strict and firm, as part of a conservation program. For the fish farming industry will certainly not lead to a decrease in the number of fish population problem, does not mean that this sector does not need regulation, just needed different regulations adjusted to the circumstances and needs.
So, the fisheries sector is one important aspect of human life. This sector has the potential to cause damage to aquatic ecosystems when not coupled with environmental conservation measures. It is appropriate that countries with a giant fishing industry became a pioneer in water conservation.
