More info

At Agadir, Morocco’s largest fishing port and the world’s leading sardine port, nets measuring several hundred feet in length are stretched out on the ground for repairs to be made before the next sea outing. The Moroccan waters, with 2,135 miles (3,500 km) of sea coast, are home to nearly 250 species of fish, particularly sardines, which swim along the shore to feed from the upwelling of the nutrient-rich lower waters. Employing trawlers and small motorboats, 75% of Moroccan fishing remains a small-scale activity. Since 1970 the world fishing output has doubled, reaching 133 million tons in 2002. The increase in captive fishing, made possible by a sixfold increase in the world fleet since 1970, has now led to a drop in resources: over 70% of fisheries are exhausted or exploited to capacity. Large fish such as cod, halibut, and tuna are on the brink of extinction: 90% of the stocks have gone and the fish that are caught are decreasing in size.
