Explain the current problem known as the "Global Fisheries Crisis". What percentage of global fisheries are overexploited today?

Step 1

Global Fisheries Crisis refers to the severe depletion in the fish stocks across global fisheries, caused by overfishing, overexploitation, and unsustainable practices. The crisis is evident by lowered general health of cultured fish, interference in spawning, severe reduction in natural population of fishes, pollution, and habitat destruction.
