Goal 14: Life Below Water
We need to make sure that overfishing, climate change, and pollution are not depleting the ocean of its fish by collecting better data and monitoring our oceans. Millions of people rely on fishing to make a living, and even more of us rely on the nutrition that eating fish and seafood provides.
We need to change both what we put into our oceans and what we take out. Making our global fishing industry sustainable and tackling pollution would mean the sea continues to provide fish for years to come.
"It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, though changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist; the threat is rather to life itself."
