Why fish is getting expensive and what are the causes

There are many people who like to enjoy their seafood from time to time and there some who consumes it frequently, even day by day. Yet the reasons of why the seafood is getting expensive are more likely to increase. The Atlantic Ocean has become deficient due to automated business fishing and is making natural fishing less approachable. For that reason, codfish has become imperiled. 

While one class of fish was caught, the others would increase its number but not for long. It would help other species survive and breed faster as there is more food left for them. However, then more interest would be directed at them in turn and it would start the process of endangerment. Sadly, but it is already begun.

At the present times, all 5 oceans were asserted as over baited. The true fact is that every species of fish is currently found in danger. The commercial and industrialized side of seafood business made this happen, also the ceaseless individuals who have bad need of fish quickened this process into making it worse. 

Going back through many years, fish farming never was even a proposition for someone to make money of it but now it is a huge deal in the countries with access to ocean/sea. Norway, the USA, Canada, Chile and Spain is standing at the top of this million-dollar worth business. Fish farming will possibly increase its growth because there is less fish than ever. Tests showed that when fishing vessels cruised into the deep waters and had an intention to fish only for industrial reasons, the species of fish started to fall.

The codfish level dropped in such a quick manner that scientists state there won’t be a restoration period where codfish numbers will come back to increase. This disaster will touch cod businesses and many seafood lovers over the years. To realize how tragic it is, let us remind you that for over half a century, the cod was the main export product for Canada. They used to send out huge amounts of codfish to the Caribbean and other America’s countries. But now the fish is gathered and imported to Canada and America from Scandinavian countries. No one listened to marine scientists and now there are consequences.

Salmon fish is also not safe and standing in a risky shaky position. It is the seafood of the west coast in the USA; however, they are dismissing the warning signals. The government is trying to keep the species from endangerment, putting millions to save it and keep it calm but in overall, the greedy fishermen and commercialized companies are ruining the progress. In that way, the growing problem remains with no specific functioning solutions.

Deep waters cover up to seventy percent of our beloved earth we live in. They control the earth’s temperature, produce oxygen and monitor the important and vital abilities to maintain a life on this planet. Yet, the humankind is ready to destroy it. The overwhelming desire of more is what makes our precious earth undergo massive rough changes.
