Globally, demand for fish has swelled nearly three times by 2010, from the 1970 average of 40 million tonnes the world consumed.

In Indonesia, with over-fishing depleting fish stocks in the Pacific Ocean, many fishermen are using aggressive means to put food on their tables, including the use of explosives, which further endangers fish supplies.

Although the government has introduced marine protected areas where fishing is limited to make sure fish populations will grow back, this may not be enough to secure fish stocks in the waters for future generations.
