I think the best answer to this would be catch and release but no one is going to like that answer. I believe it is something that needs to be regulated more closely. Similar to limiting deer hunters to 2-3 bucks per season. Large fish are over hunted in the wild and there numbers have been serverly reduced. This is one of many treats to natural ocean environments that has arrisen over the past few decades. By putting stricter mandates on the amount of fish being taken out of the water we can help preserve the ocean environment.
The global fishing fleet is 2-3 times larger than what the oceans can sustainably support.
In other words, people are taking far more fish out of the ocean than can be replaced by those remaining.
As a result:
Some ways that fishermen can be more sustainable is to only take larger specimens that have had some time in their reproductive phase. Many fish species are caught before they are even old enough to reproduce, which decreases populations quickly. Another way fishermen can help is to put back pregnant females. In some aquatic species, such as lobsters, females carry their eggs on their bodies. This alerts fishermen to return them back to the water.
