Today, there are over 3 million vessels fishing our oceans.
Some of the biggest ships called "Supertrawlers" can be the length of a football field and fit 12 planes onto their deck.
The "Supertrawler" catches 10 tons of fish per hour!!!
The Global Fisheries industry is spending more time, money, and effort on the ocean, and fishing harder than ever before...
This is seriously threatening entire populations of fish that have roamed the earth for hundreds of millions of years.
