In the present day, the slogan “go green” is becoming increasingly relevant, especially in the context of swiftly dwindling natural resources and deteriorating environment. That growing relevance has driven the term eco-friendly to become a significant component of every commercial enterprise across the globe, including the fishing industry.
For quite a long time, people have depended on the sea for their livelihood. by harvesting its wealth of fish. In modern times, technological advancements have enabled people to catch fish from the ocean on an extensive scale to meet the ever increasing demand. Regrettably, there are many adverse environmental upshots to these methods and excessive fishing has been recognised as one of the main reason of ecosystem breakdown in various oceanic systems.
As the overall approach to things changes on a global scale, the fishing techniques also are undergoing constant evolution. There are much-needed alterations being made to different aspects of the business right from the vessels and motors being used to the various fishing methods being deployed. Each and every part of the process is being addressed to make the process as easy on the environment as possible.
The previously used loud and roaring engines, that needed a considerable measure of fuel and contaminated the surroundings, damaging the environment en route, have now been replaced with eco-friendly versions courtesy the recent endeavours to equip power fishing boats with improved engines. The initiative in due time will make an impact on an international scale.
One of the major shift in the manner we fish has happened due to the incorporation of technology and natural cleaning products in fishing on an extensive scale. By using cutting edge equipment and procedures, we can not only catch more fish but also set free the smaller fish back into the water.
The usage of trawlers and nets implied that small fish, which are normally useless to anglers, was caught in the net with the larger fish. With the latest technology, the smaller fish can jump back into the sea through tiny openings providing them with an opportunity to mature. This enables the fish population to grow, thereby enhancing the quality of the fish that’s caught.
So, the present arrangement is a win-win for everyone involved, the anglers catch excellent quality fish, increasing their earnings, customers get to pick better quality fish, and the ecosystem and fish population also gets benefitted along the way.
In a nutshell, incorporating green methods and natural products will account for a healthier, thriving and greener tomorrow for the fishing business.
