WWF: 40% of fish catch wasted !

Picture of overfishing by the WWFBy reading the RSS feed of the WWF I came across an information that I found staggering at a times where overfishing threatens globally our seas and oceans. (example: Bluefin tuna could disappear in 3 years)

To the organization : “Nearly half of the world’s recorded fish catch is unused, wasted or not accounted for”. This waste accounts for at least 38 million tonnes of fish each year.

For more details about this most worrying fact, please check out the press release or the full report Defining and estimating global marine fisheries bycatch.
