Overfishing, fishing when using practices over a certain limit, is the new problem for the outside of one’s environment. These actions are decreasing fish populations, including the demand for sharks. If we do not become sustainable, a way of living during the present time to help our future generations, during this era, our future will be under harsh conditions. We need to find new outcomes with the help of the government. The three ways the government can make fishing sustainable include: using marine reserves, increasing cost of supply, and finding new marine organisms that are able to reproduce quickly. The government can help future generations sustainable by requiring marine reserves in fisheries. Marine reserves are areas that allow fishing to improve fisheries, yet they are also made to preserve entire ecosystems with humans interfering. For example, a team focused on reserves off the coasts of Florida and the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. After three years of visual surveys of fish expansion, they learned that these fish populations-including snappers, grunts, and groupers-had tripled inside these reserves and doubled outside of them. If fish populations keep increasing, marine reserves will help fishermen to keep their employment for the future and help marine organisms reproduce quicker making our fishing practices a positive outcome. If the government were able to increase the cost of buying marine organisms in stores, which has occurred over time throughout the years, this would help marine organisms become sustainable in the long term. To demonstrate, if a consumer buys salmon more than snappers, then fishermen will want to capture the salmon population more. But if the government demands stores to increase the price of purchasing one specific species, then this new demand will create benefits. One particular benefit includes that consumers will begin to find new products to purchase from the seafood aisle, which will give the chance for fishermen the expand their possibilities in fishing other species, that will then make one population increase yet also make other populations, including the first population that was almost endangered, even out with low populations. Even though this idea may decrease an ecosystem as a whole, this will also keep one population from going
How should Wal-Mart rationalize its seafood supply chain to reduce costs and promote sustainability?
Walmart has a large retail seafood business and it is always a challenge to reduce cost and promote sustainability. With upward trend for the demand of sea-food, depletion of the seafood supply is inevitable unless Walmart have a deep engagement of their supply chain. One strategy that Walmart wants to promote to their suppliers is for all of them to take up the Marine Stewardship Council’s certification…

identify the demand of humans on nature and the supply of resources by nature in order to protect the natural capital. The supply and demand balance is essential to setting goals and developing sustainability policies (Wackernagel et al., 2005:2). “Ecological footprint” is a measure proposed for measuring sustainability. It indicates the critical natural capital required for a given economy or a population in terms of biologically productive areas (Donald and Patterson, 2003:…

BUS 510 – Assignment 2
Like the first exercise, write this in MS Word. #5 is mandatory, and choose 2 more from the remainder (#1,2, 3,4), for a total of 3 questions answered.
1. An important component of implementing a sustainability "plan" includes benchmarking an organization for its current environmental performance status. We applied this to our own lives in class through the online footprint exercises. What did you learn from this exercise? Did anything surprise you? Where…
on posted streams, rivers, and reservoirs and elevated bacteria levels in the water and on the skin of the fish in these waters. I am glad that this question came up because I love to fish and eat fish.
I believe that the environmental sustainability issue is, that the cause of this contamination is due to people’s septic tanks, collection system, and animal waste systems failure. This causes the water to become contaminated infecting the fish. Also urban run off can cause some of these issues…

• Trawler fishing: Used to catch fish and shellfish that live on or near the
ocean floor. Involves a funnel-shaped net along the ocean floor. Destroys
ocean floor habitats.
• Purse-seine fishing: A spotter plane locates a school of fish and a fishing
vessel encloses the fish with a large net. Large numbers of dolphins have
been killed due to getting stuck in the nets.
• Longlining fishing: Putting out line hung…
Alaska has more than 40% of the nation’s surface water resources including over 12,000 rivers, 3 millions lakes greater than 5 acres and numerous creeks and ponds. Annual migrations of salmon up the Yukon and Kuskokwim bring ocean nutrients into the interior -enriching riparian zones and feeding eagles, bears, and wolves-and humans. Lush riparian areas are important to insect-eating songbirds in summer, and willow ptarmigan, snowshoe hare and moose in winter. Rivers also serve as travel corridors…
