Fighting For Fishes
Victor Charlie Andin, Senior Sustainable Aquaculture Officer, WWF-Malaysia
It's estimated that each Malaysian consumes about 56.5 kg seafood per year - and that number rises annually. Driven by our insatiable demand for seafood, Malaysia’s fishery resources have been over-exploited and almost 90% of Malaysia’s bottom-dwelling fish stock in some fishing areas has declined due to unsustainable fishing practices, pushing fishery resources to the verge of collapse and damaging the environment in the process. We speak to Victor Charlie Andin from WWF-Malaysia, to discuss the role we all should play to conserve our marine resources for future generations.
