Should commercial fishing be banned worldwide?

Asked by: 11kennardb
  • What's it's use?

    Fish isn't required for our bodies, and fish take a while to reproduce.
    Not to mention the fact that Fishing boats pollute our oceans more and more.
    And even after a fishing trip sometimes the boat's going to have to go through Huge tides, that can drop fish back into the ocean.

  • We don't need fish.

    Fish is not required for human life. Not only that, commercial fishing destroys massive populations of fish, many of which are not even eaten once caught (as they are not fit for human consumption). Methods used on large fishing boats damage the ocean floor, destroying vital ecosystems along with taking away the wild fish from their habitat. Many species (cod, for example) are becoming overfished, and restoring their population back to its former glory will take a long time. Not only that, removing large fishing boats from the oceans will reduce the amount of pollutants released into the sea, again, being a positive effect for the environment.

  • Should we ban fishing?

    Yes I think we should ban fishing because about 1,763,000 fish a caught and dead every year. Also, fishermen may catch baby fish and not even know it. If they catch baby fish they wont be able to have babies of there own then we will have less fish in the ocean or lake.

  • Commercial fishing kills over 1000 fish a year I think it should be banned because

    1its bad and pollutes the ocean
    2 it kills everything
    3 how do the know what they're fishing?
    4 pregnant fish get caught
    5 I love sea life and soon they'll all be gone :/
    6 and how do you think the fish feel?
    We need to give sea life time to repopulate

  • As long as it is legal,

    I do not see a problem with it. Sure, there are some illegal fishing vessels out there that break the laws but for the most part, the gaming commission DNR and other agencies who regulate acceptable amounts of fishing as well as hunting are doing a good job at preserving the species at acceptable levels.

  • We should ban commercial fishing

    Ever gone out to find that after spending 30 dollars on bait and petrol you come back with nothing! After that we spend 30 dollars in the supermarket buying fish. Much more fish will be in the ocean and much more for recreational fishers to catch. For those who can't catch fish they will have to live without

  • I ban it

  • Fishing nets and lines are killing other marine life.

    Fishing nets and lines are killing marine life such as sea turtles, dolphins, sea birds, whales and sharks. All of these creatures are dying so we can have a snack is that right? Think about it we are killing all of these species just so we can have fish and chips on the beach. Fishing is the biggest threat to sea turtles and causes the species to be endangered. I think fishing should be banned.

  • We're killing off many species

    1). There are just 40,000 adult Pacific bluefin tuna remaining in the wild today. 2). Federal scientists documented a 91 percent decline in sardine numbers along the West Coast since 2007. 3). Dramatic declines in the cod population 4). I could be here all day making a list. The point is that commercial fishing doesn't discriminate. Many fish are caught in nets and die -- juvenile fish who haven't reached sexual maturity to reproduce.

  • It's pivotal for some people.

    Not all of us have to live off of fish, that's a given. You go to any fishing village, or a small coastal village, there would be a good chance that you see a lot of people who depend on fish. So you'll be seeing the complete opposite compared to people who live in cities or other communities. Some people have to fish 24/7, 365 days a year just to make a living. Banning commercial fishing will be foolish and senseless to do. It would be like banning people (who are not fishermen) from fishing. How would they be able to make a living? Some of them only know how to fish, so their future would be a huge question mark because they wouldn't know what to do next.

  • We need it!

    Commercial fishing creates jobs, which increases profits. Which increases the number of jobs. Which are needed! I support the preservation of the seas, and life forms in the seas. We could have restrictions. Such as not damaging the population of fish and other life forms not so much, damaging the sea floor etc.

  • Helps feed the population

    As long as the fish population isn't endangered, why not? Fish has vitamins which are needed for our health. Have some restrictions though. To prevent the sea floor being damaged, life forms habitats also damaged etc. Commercial fishing also created jobs. Quite a few countries could use some jobs, you know.

    It also helps the economy.

  • Human extermination has to start somewhere.

    Eliminating an important source of high quality protein for people around the world would be an important first step in removing us as a blight from the planet. Once commercial fishing is eliminated, many humans will turn their hungry maws on other sources of nutrition inland they don't really need, which is a convenient argument that can cover any food besides fresh water. The destruction of inland habitats for agriculture to meet the needs of humans could be targeted for elimination one product at a time. Probably starting with cattle or hog production, but an alternative would be to exploit the recent popular skepticism toward high-fructose corn syrup to begin eliminating corn farming.

  • As long as it is legal,

    I do not see a problem with it. Sure, there are some illegal fishing vessels out there that break the laws but for the most part, the gaming commission DNR and other agencies who regulate acceptable amounts of fishing as well as hunting are doing a good job at preserving the species at acceptable levels.

  • I Prefer Commercial Fishing

    Commercial fishing shouldn't be banned worldwide. It provides consumers with a fresh and natural product, and is an essential part of our diets and marketplace. I would rather have fishing vessels operate under strict regulation than to farm-raise our fish supply artificially. When the government properly regulates the fishing of any species, and holds vessels accountable for their fishing practices, there is no environmental harm. If any action were to be taken, I would institute a boycott of all illegitimate or inhumane fishing practices, and only do business with responsible fisheries and vessels.

Not banned, it should be monitored and controlled.
