Overfishing: Problems, Statistics, and Solutions

1. Overfishing: Problems, Statistics, and Solutions

Many of our fisheries are in decline due to overfishing, but human consumption and demand continues to rise. How do we find a balance between allowing fish stocks to recover while still feeding millions of people all over the world?

Aquaculture: Environmental Effects of Fish Farming

2. Aquaculture: Environmental Effects of Fish Farming

Although we picture fish swimming in open water, a large portion of the fish we consume is actually grown in pens. This practice of aquaculture is a growing trend worldwide and has results in a variety of environmental problems.

Fishing Treaties and Laws: International Cooperation to Protect Aquatic Ecosystems

3. Fishing Treaties and Laws: International Cooperation to Protect Aquatic Ecosystems

Many of the world's fisheries are in decline. This has led to the creation of both national and international conservation laws to protect them and the ecosystems they inhabit, ensuring that they will be around for generations to come.

Earth's Materials: Minerals, Rocks, Soil & Water

4. Earth's Materials: Minerals, Rocks, Soil & Water

Although the earth is a very complex system, there are only four main components of Earth that are the building blocks of life. These components are referred to as Earth's materials and include minerals, rocks, soil and water.

Global Mineral Reserves: Sustainability, Economic Implications, and Environmental Effects

5. Global Mineral Reserves: Sustainability, Economic Implications, and Environmental Effects

Minerals are vital components of our everyday lives, but each mineral only exists in a finite amount on Earth. How do we find a balance between supporting economies while also protecting the environment and ensuring the use of minerals for future generations?

Mining Laws, Regulations, and Treaties: Safety and Reclamation

6. Mining Laws, Regulations, and Treaties: Safety and Reclamation

Mining is big business, but mines can pose numerous hazards. Because of this, both national and international laws are in place to protect miners and the environment while still allowing the products of mining to play a role in our everyday lives.
