Fishing is a dangerous and unstable way to earn a living. It has a higher accident rate than any other civilian job and depends on irregular variables, prices and changes in the world’s climate that are becoming harder and harder to predict. Pollution and the weather changes predicted for the year 2025 (a rise of 1.560 in the temperature of the ocean surface and an increase of 20 cm in level of the sea) are endangering the planet. The delicate makeup of the oceans is very sensitive and will be one of the first to suffer permanent and irreversible damage. Weather changes and pollution will do devastating harm to the fishing industry and its communities.
