[Ecosystem] Blast Fishing

by UNEP TUNZA | 22-01-2013 09:43 Comments 31 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations



The Visayan Sea has lost almost 90% of its coral and much of its marine life to over-fishing, blast fishing and cyanide poisoning. Tony Oposa has set up a school for kids to teach them about environment awareness.

    i think i can make a connection of this blast fishing to dynamite fishing which happens a lot here in chuuk micronesia, as rongel and emerald had just mentioned.. thanks for the awareness video

    Blast fishing is a very serious thing. The people don't think about the coral that stay there. It seriously affects them and it affects fish too. They usually kill many fish and the corals that could have been habitats to other fish.

    i just turned in an essay about this very topic. i didnt know that it was this harmful. yes i did know that it kills many harmful fish and its habitat. like rongel said this island that i am at uses dynamites to fish. to them its like an easy way to catch fish but they dont realize what it does to the ocean as well.

    I am at a school in micronesia and most of these people use dynamite to fish and they kill a lot of the coral.

    Many of them don't know what exactly they are doing.
    This is the why awareness campaign is important for the environment protection.

    It's so sad to see coral reefs being damaged because of improper catching techniques. And it's also sad to see so many villagers being injured from such horrible ways of fishing. I hope the children learned the importance of coral reefs.

    Destroying coral reefs can make the region more vulnerable to tsumanis...
