Only a small fraction of marine life is being protected. 70% of our world is made up of water, interestingly 70-75% of our bodies is also made up of water. Less than 1% of our water is protected from the devastation that overfishing and overeating fish is doing to our world’s waters. Species after species are being depleted in our oceans. Bluefin Tuna being one of the species that has become endangered. Some restaurants of our world still serve Bluefin Tuna on their menu. Mitsubishi has cornered a large percentage of this beautiful species for profit.
