Overfishing threatens biodiversity, exacerbates climate change

# A research study by the University of Columbia has emphasised the critical link between overfishing and climate change. According to the research, stopping overfishing is deemed essential for ocean vitality, climate robustness, and livelihoods reliant on sustainable fisheries. The findings underscore the ecological imperative of ending overfishing to bolster marine life resilience and reduce associated carbon emissions. Additionally, the research calls for multifaceted regulations to halt heavy metal pollution in the ocean, intensifying the negative impacts of warming and overfishing.
