An old African proverb says” Water may flow in a thousand chanels, but it all returns to the sea” Pollution brought by rivers into the sea, waste and effluent discharges in costal areas, and oil pollution offshore are pitting tremendious pressure on the oceans and, consequenently, on marine life.
Our oceans are teeming with life. For centeries we thought that their vastness provided an inexhaustible food supply. Not quite so. Today, around 76% of the word’s fishing stocks are fully exploited or overfished. Many fish stocks are being depleted byond their regeneration capacity, wich means that we are fishing at a faster rate than they are breeding.
