Tommy Jerdee's insight:
Isabella Agostino's insight: This source is current, as it was published in 2010, it is also authoritative, because it follows the true events (with footage) of a group that caught corporations illegally fishing and serving dolphins and whales. This is a limiting factor for the biotic aspect of the ocean because over fishing can cause depletion of species which disrupts the ecosystem and causes other problems such as lose of food source for the species who eat the species in endangerment. This short, informational videos purpose is to inform the public of not only the illegality that can occur in the fishing market and how such actions are detrimental for species being fished, but a way in which we can over see a solution. They call it "catch share." Learn more about it in this resourceful video.
