Illegal overfishing affects catch in Turkish waters

The annual fish catch in the wild has declined from 503,000 tonnes to 354,000 tonnes over the last 20 years.

    Turkey’s fishing industry accounts for roughly 1 percent of its economy, but that figure is likely to go down as a result of overfishing.
