  • The fish industry contributes a staggering $90 billion to the US economy and is said to have created around 1.5 million jobs for Americans. While it is powering their monthly paycheck, the overfishing is destroying our ecosystems which are unable to cope with the sudden loss of aquatic life.
  • The largest producer of fish isn’t the United States, India or even Indonesia, that title goes to China which employs 3.5 million full time workers in this industry.
