As stated in past posts, “every day fisheries products are utilized all over the world: direct human/animal consumption, fish meal, fish oil, food additives, medicine etc (Bostock et al. 2010).” The majority of aquatic products come from commercial fisheries, or from wild stocks. It is evident that sustainable fishing is something of an old wives’ tale as the current demand for aquatic flora and fauna far exceeds nature’s capability of replenishing itself. Generally, when regulation is thought to be imposed, it is too late as a point of no return has been reached.

The United States has 1,628 Marine Protection Areas surrounding the coasts of the continental US, Alaska, Hawaii and all other commonwealths to current date (Brock 2015). All of the MPAs are segmented into 19 different ecoregions, biased on area, habitat, and the species of organisms that reside in those regions. 71% of those 1,628 MPAs focus on fish assemblages in the marine environment. The purpose of the MPAs are to preserve or allow habitats to thrive and strengthen with as little human influence as possible.

Commercial fisheries exploitation is a common theme among the majority of target marine species. Every day fisheries products are utilized all over the world: direct human/animal consumption, fish meal, fish oil, food additives, medicine etc (Bostock et al. 2010). However, the majority of fisheries consumers don’t have an understanding of commercial fishing’s environmental short-comings.
