    World Fisheries Day

    Happy World Fisheries Day! Observed on November 21, World Fisheries Day seeks to promote sustainability by drawing attention to overfishing, habitat destruction, and other threats to our marine and freshwater resources. The most recent UN Food and Agriculture Organization survey of global fisheries reported that about 1/3 of the world's fish stocks are being fished at unsustainable levels. The stakes are high. 2.5 BILLION people receive at least 20% of their animal protein intake from fish, and fisheries and aquaculture support the livelihoods of 10-12 percent of the world’s population.
