  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Overfishing plays havoc with ecosystems in South Africa” – below is their description.

    In #SouthAfrica, the abandonment of more than 1,700 baby Cape cormorants off the coast of #CapeTown back in January has got scientists worried. It’s thought the chicks were abandoned by their parents because of diminishing #fish stocks, with the adults forced to migrate in order to survive. #Overfishing has been disastrous for local #ecosystems in Southern Africa, but reeling in the fishing industry is no easy task. The sector generates €335 million per year and employs close to 30,000 people.
