Many species of mammals, fish or seabirds living in the oceans are known to be in danger. But the most important of these is the glacier whale, which has only 411 left. We may have to watch the extinction of these whales during our lifetime.
From 1980 to 2010, measures were taken to protect whales from impacts of ships. These measures led to a slight recovery in the number of whales.
However, the population decreased due to the strengthening of the ropes and the whales spending time in the same areas as the fishermen. Some of the whales that died in 2010-2018 are known to have died due to lobster and crab hunting.
Whales live free in the ocean, but it affects populations of nutritional deficiencies and energy loss. The most important proof of this is the low breeding rates observed.
The biggest problem is the ropes used for lobster and crab fishing. Apart from whales, turtles and various endangered fish species are caught in these ropes.
A rope-free and rope-free technology that does not harm whales or other creatures needs to be introduced. But to do so, governments need to make radical decisions and implement them. No fisherman wants to catch whales, and researchers don’t want fishermen to be unemployed. As fishing technologies evolve, the fishing industry offers opportunities to be safer and more functional.
It is possible for states to provide this with various incentives. For example, California crab fishermen received an exemption for the next hunting period, provided that they close the season three months early and use rope-free technology.
There is an endangered species law and a law on the protection of marine mammals in the United States. In addition, the law on whales provides significant resources to prevent deaths from the fishing and maritime industries.
