Mediterranean Sea is getting empty

Through overfishing we actually jeopardize lives of millions of people all over the world. 1 in 10 people worldwide depends of fishing not only as far as his nutrition is concerned, but also regarding his income. Almost 33% of fish around the world is overfished, whereas this percentage rises up to 62% in the Mediterranean Sea, according to Food and Agriculture Organization’s report “The state of world fisheries and aquaculture”. The global trend of unsustainable fishing is also being confirmed by the report “State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture”, published the same year (2018) again by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. That makes the Mediterranean Sea the most overfished area in the world and brings its fish stocks at serious and real risk of being depleted.
