With the rise in the fishing industry, several species of fish now face the chance of being extinct from the face of the world. In fact, the past couple of decades have seen a huge of number of fishes getting wiped off from the earth. The primary reason remains the selfish activities of man.
Fishing is considered a popular sport in many countries. Many people go for fishing just for fun. Fishes are the main source of food in various countries too. The economy of some of these countries is driven mainly by the fishing industry. Philippines can be sited as an example in this case. Tuna is a popularly consumed fish all around the world. The Great Santos City of the country is also called its tuna capital because of the popularity of the fish. Every year, so many thousands of the fish is consumed that reports have come that the fish is on the verge of being extinct there. Now, the government there have made artificial fishery where tuna is cultured to be reared.
There are many different species in the tuna family. Yet, only six of the recorded twenty one types of tuna varieties are cultured more as they are ones consumed mostly by the people. Thus, those six types of species have more chances of being eliminated from the biodiversity soon. Sadly, even though much are said about the extinction of fishes and other marine lives around the world, not much has been done to curb the problem permanently. The fishing industry continues to grow, and so the danger of fishes getting extinct remains.
