World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) declares 90% of fishes in the Philippines gone
Fishing is one of the Philippines' main source of livelihood. Fishes are, in fact, a staple food Filipinos have on their tables. Therefore, they should be kept in abundance. If there are no fishes, then there would be no fishermen, and if there are no fishes and fishermen, some people would no longer have anything to eat. Or some would become forced vegetarians.

Last night's report from ABS-CBN came as a shock as findings from the WWF reported that 90% of fishes from the Philippines are gone over the past 60 years. That being said, can the Philippines and its people survive with 10% for the coming years? I do not want to find out.

While it is common knowledge that there is a steady growth of pollution and illegal fishing, many people are not aware of this important fact. And what good time for this information to come out than today. Perhaps everybody would be willing to figure out what to do to help stop the constant decrease of fish population. The only hope? Fish sanctuaries and fish farms.

Still, not many people can create fish farms and not many people have the funds to put up fish sanctuaries. Most people would still continue to fish in illegal ways because times are hard and when times are hard, one must find a way to increase income, and for some people, that means one has to have more catch (of fish) to sell. Are there other ways to catch more other than by illegal means? I am sure there are a lot more, but fishermen need to be taught SERIOUSLY about these things.

There is a need to stop this speedy decline. And movement needs to start now. I do not know how I can help personally, but I will try to find a way. For now, spreading the word on this fact is the first step I know.



Please help save the schools of fish that are endangered. Please help save the ocean. Please help save the world.

About Me: even when she has fairy wings on, this girl is anything BUT dainty. perhaps the size, the weight, and the personality alone are just too much for her to be considered delicate, prim, proper, and refined. this girl with the mud smudged cheeks has been down on the ground one to many times. these times forced her to be tougher, smarter, and more savvy than she has ever been. perhaps she will always be, never dainty. email me: neverdainty [at] gmail [dot] com
