Overfishing is a problem not just facing America, but the world. If we want to continue fishing in the future (50 years from now) then we need to put a stop to overfishing. According to cbsnews.com, all salt-water fish are going to extincted by 2048. That is around the corner and without policies in place to prevent overfishing we won't have a food supply that supplies 2 and 1/2 billion people with 20% of their protein intake. This impacts coastal cities especially a lot. For example Japanese people eat on average 150 lbs of fish a year.  This would severely impact their diet and food supply.
