Dolphins and Whales Decimated by Fishing Industry

A new report from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) finds that industrial fishing is responsible for the death of almost 9 out of 10 toothed whales—including dolphins and porpoises— who are threatened by entanglement and subsequent drowning in gillnets, traps, longlines, and trawls.

The number of aquatic animals killed as "bycatch" by the fishing industry is appalling. Killing and discarding animals raises serious ethical issues that cannot be ignored. It is up to each of us to support only industries that honor God's Creation by showing compassion and reverence to all creatures.
