Nurseries Quotes (1 quote)
[Overfishing] its not just that were taking too many out, its how were doing it. We are wiping out their nurseries, [because some huge boats] bottom trawl [with] nets that 50 years ago youd have to lift when you came to coral reefs or rocks or nooks and crannies. Now theyre so sophisticated and so heavy, the equipment, and the boats so powerful they can just drag right over the coral reefs and the rocks and the nooks and crannies, and turn them into a gravel pit. The trouble is those are the nurseries. Thats where the little fish hide and get bigger and get big enough for us to eat.
