Losing Nemo - full documentary

Overfishing is a serious problem that plagues our oceans and estimates suggest that close to 2 trillion animals are caught in the ocean each year. In order to raise awareness about this cause, an international group of volunteers have created a short film titled “Losing Nemo.”

“Ocean overfishing is simply the taking of wildlife from the sea at rates too high for fished species to replace themselves,” shares the National Geographic. “The earliest overfishing occurred in the early 1800s when humans, seeking blubber for lamp oil, decimated the whale population. Some fish that we eat, including Atlantic cod and herring and California’s sardines, were also harvested to the brink of extinction by the mid-1900s. Highly disruptive to the food chain, these isolated, regional depletions became global and catastrophic by the late 20th century.”

Most recently, a study found that the endangered bluefin tuna has seen a record decline by a whopping rate of 96% according to a newly published study. The problem with the overfishing is that the young fish are being fished before they have the opportunity to reproduce and increase their population.
