|Eating jellyfish could save endangered fish
There may be an answer to food shortages – eating jellyfish. This could also protect endangered fish and sea life. Researchers did a study of fishing around the world. They found that fishing nets caught 92 endangered species and 11 "critically endangered" species. This is not illegal as the fish are not protected. A researcher said: "Despite…international commitments to protect threatened species, we actively fish for many of these threatened species."
We are eating sea life that could go extinct. Eating jellyfish could protect fish in danger of disappearing from our oceans. Jellyfish could become common on menus. Jellyfish are a sustainable alternative to other kinds of fish. The researcher said seafood is not as sustainable as we think. She said we should fish for species that can survive the fishing pressure. She added: "We just have to care about weird-looking squishy things like sea cucumbers."
