We could learn from the Maldivians, who learned to fish sustainably

Ocean fishing is causing catastrophic damage to the environment, with the use of big nets, massive boats, and a continuing search to find high yield areas irreparable damage is being done. People from the Maldives have found a brilliant way of fishing with sustainability in mind.

Being one of the world’s most geographically isolated islands. The Maldives are the smallest Asian country by both population and land area, and have less than 400 thousand inhabitants.

Instead of using huge nets, the Maldivians only use a rod and a hook to fish tuna fish. What may be too sensational to be true turns out to be characteristic tradition to the Maldives, and their boats fill with fish.
