Overfishing Organization :
Overfishing Organization has tried to set catch limits of fish, control on by-catch which means the unwanted fish and other marine creatures caught during commercial fishing are thrown out of the ship. They also protect important habitats, and monitor and reinforce to make sure fishermen do not bring more fish to land than they are allowed to.

What can I do to help?
Sources in books and webites:
Overfishing is trans-national/boundary-relating to or involving several nations or nationalities becauseoverfishing happens every wherein the world, It is a significant issue,which means it is sufficiently important to be worthy of attention because it will affect the food chain and animals will not get fish to eat (eg:bears). It persistent means:continuing for a long time in a course of action because overfishing happens everyday.
Save Our Seas Organization:
Save Our Seas has tried putting pressure on the government to limit fishing amounts,establish and expand Marine Protected Areas (MPAs),better monitoring,and policing of fish trade,also ask consumers to buy sourced seafood which means- to buy from a facility where it is available.

It is a problem because 52% of fish stocks are fully exploited. 20% are moderately exploited. 17% are overexposure 7% are depleted. 1% is recovering from depletion which reduction in the number or quantity of something (fish).
What are we losing in overfishing?
It is an environmental issue, because fish is part the of food chain/web. The food chain is something like this:The fish eat plankton.But without fish, there will be too many plankton and the hungry animals will starve to death or move away because there will be no fish to eat.
