I need an explanation for this Ecology question to help me study.

Instructions

Introduction

In the Unit III Lesson, you learned about the overfishing and decline of the Atlantic Cod off the coast of Nova Scotia. Other populations of fish around the world have been affected in much the same way. This activity will help you explore which species are imperiled by current fishing practices and which are, for now, a relatively sustainable choice for the table.
