The sea is one of the natural resources of a general nature, so that everyone can be free to exploit the content of the sea, especially the fish. Fish is one of the biggest selling commodity in the world, because of the advantages that can be very high due to the consumption of everyday people around the world, so natural fish resources is in the continuous exploitation. Problems occur when exploitation doing irresponsibly, because sea are common thing, people are competing to gain as much as possible without thinking about the sustainability of fish, because there are times when we should not be catching fish, when the fish will reproduce, principally fish is a renewable resource, it’s just limited by the successful regeneration of the fish in the fish reach reproductive cycle is complete, but unfortunately people also make arrests at that time when the fish will reproduce, so you can imagine that the sustainability of the fish will be depleted in the absence of the recovery process.
According to the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization), the sea was predicted to produce 100 million to fish each year. In 1988, fishermen have been catching fish 97.4 tons. That number decreased every year. Not because it reduces human activity, but fish stocks are depleted.
The catch from the sea is the staple food for humans; it is evidenced by the increasing rate of consumption of fish each year, because the fish is the most profitable commodities annually. A country that can optimize marine resources is a prosperous country; we see that Japan can optimize marine catch a developed country export and import of fish parts.
Hope for the future in addition to excelling in the arrest, we can also optimize cultivation in the sea in order for the preservation of marine organisms can be maintained and nutrition world community remains fulfilled.
Fish farming currently accounts for about 30% of the total world production of fish and Asian countries about 87% of the world production of farmed fish. China has so far led to the production of farmed fish products accounted for about 60% of world aquaculture. Then followed by India 9%, Japan (4%) and Indonesia finished fourth, with accounts for about 4% of world aquaculture production of fish (FAO, 1997).
So, by those kinds of arguments, let’s discuss by having a motion TH Support Fishing Taxation.
