Water Resource Plan 1 Running head WATER RESOURCE PLAN Water Resource Plan Student Name College Name Water Resource Plan The main problem discussed in the video is the reduction in the large fish population The reduction of the fish population goes back to one of the other problems facing the world our population Since the world s population has grown larger by every year that passes the need for food increases Thus the reason for overfishing the world s oceans is obvious population growth more fishing is needed In order to supply enough food for the people of the world we need to catch the fish Since there is always going to be a need for the fishing industry and for the fish they catch we need to look for a way to better the fishing while at the same time keeping the fish population at a level where they will not go extinct One way of doing this is by creating enough hatcheries where the government can control the amount of fish raised and released back into the oceans This might sound easy but the sheer size of a salt water hatchery will cost millions As it stands right now there are numerous hatcheries small and raise fish that are not being overfished Instead they are raising fish that are used in sports fishing such as the red tail fish in Florida I feel that if we can sustain an ocean aquarium with all kinds of marine life then there can be some large salt water hatcheries to raise tuna swordfish and even halibut if needed By reviewing what good can come from this type of project there should be no hassle in getting it off the ground but with everything there is always those who will oppose One of the problems that can be seen right from the start is the room needed to raise these types of fish Whether it is the swordfish or the tune they need a lot of room to run as well as a fresh supply of live food These fish are predators in the open waters of the ocean feeding off of hearing crabs ies and whatever else they can catch and eat Being carnivorous and very fast swimmers these majestic fish will accept as food whatever gets in their path Suzuki 1991 So if one is to take on a project of this magnitude they have best be prepared for the size of the project One of the other negative reactions might be the beach front property needed With the fisheries being salt water they will need a constant ow of fresh salt water to keep the fish healthy Other than the size of the fisheries needed there should be no real problems or people feeling negativity towards a project like this The people who will view the plan might think that while being very expensive to start the project should show some positive results within a few years The increase in the fish population would not only be very accepted it might even help lower the price of these targeted fish Once the project starts it might be proven to work so well that even other fish could be raised in this manner stopping the need for banning other types of fishing While these fish are struggling to survive there are other issues with the commercial fishing in the ocean One of the main problems that can be seen worldwide is the use of nets to catch certain types of fish Apart from the nets harming the ocean oor by destroying fish beds crustaceans and the habitat of other bottom dwelling species the nets catch everything not just the targeted species of fish It is estimated that for every 37 million pounds of targeted fish these commercial fishermen discard 106 million pounds of untargeted fish Rosenberg 2005 If we could eliminate even half of the destruction we are causing then we are making progress Progress that everyone can be proud of and say that they were around to help With the installation of hatcheries we could eliminate the need for this useless destruction not to mention the other opportunities they will produce In the areas where the hatcheries are set up they will open up more jobs for the public not to mention the jobs it will create for the construction of these places If one hatchery could offer up to 200 hundred jobs to local residents then it would even help with the unemployment problem we are faced with Considering all of this these hatcheries should be strategically place up and down our cost lines in areas where the unemployment is high and the population is small In this way we would be essentially helping on more levels than just the fish population problem By reducing unemployment is these areas and giVing jobs to the locals not only would we be helping the fish but we would be helping our own economy as well Reference Rosenberg A 2005 Wasted shery resources discarded laycatch in the USA 2005 Retrieved June 5 2009 httpoceanaorgnorthamericawhatwedostopdirtyfishingdiscardsinus fisheries Suzuki Z December 11 1991 Interaction of Pacific tuna fisheries Volume 2 Fisheries and Aquaculture Department 1 Retrieved June 4 2009 from httpWWWfaoorgDOCREP005T 1817ET1817E05htm
