Read the following article in The Guardian newspaper to supplement our two great resources on sustainable fishing.
The Bay of Bengal basin contains some of the most populated regions in the world, with 200 million people living along the coast here. The number dependent on the fisheries is already great and only going to grow further due to issues of climate change (drought, water scarcity and rising sea levels). This all adds increasing pressure to the already severely depleted fisheries, which have not been managed sustainably in the past.
We have two great resources on issues surrounding fish stock sustainablity which can be found here.
1. A resource which allows students to consider and sort six people's different attitudes for and against overfishing versus sustainable fishing.
2. A geography skills and mystery activity on using fish as a natural resource.
