This fisherman, age 43, reported that fisheries catches have decreased dramatically as a consequence of overfishing. In addition, due to the Greek economic crisis, many people who formerly had another job resorted to fishing to feed their families. He called for increased monitoring and implementation of the existing laws as a solution to solve the problem of overfishing, which negatively affects him and his colleagues.
