BEACH Module 12: Sustainable Fishing Practices
9 LESSONS: LEVEL 4
When it comes to catching fish, we have numerous options including nets, rods, trawling and even our bare hands. Fishing sustainably ensures we respect our fishing habitats and guarantee we leave enough fish in the ocean for future generations. In many indigenous cultures, people have fished sustainably for thousands of years. Today’s sustainable fishing practices reflect some lessons learned from these cultures.
