The World Wildlife Fund has recently calculated that coral reefs could potentially decline by as much as thirty percent over the next two decades, with the largest declines seen in the Eastern Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean. This latest research into coral reefs has given scientists the ammunition they need to devise effective fishing solutions to save these irreplaceable natural wonders from destruction.

In the report released in June of 2021, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change (IPCC) estimated that between fourteen and thirty-two percent of the world’s coral reefs had been destroyed between 2021. The worst affected areas were in Central and South America, the Caribbean, and the Pacific. Coral reefs are very important for our current ecosystem. If we didn’t have coral reefs, over half of the fish population in the oceans would be gone. Coral reefs provide an underwater environment that supports a diverse variety of marine animals, including millions of fish, corals, sponges, and mollusks.
