Overexploitaion

Overexploitaion

  • Harvesting or hunting something to the point that the population cannot replenish.

  • Humans overexploit more than any other species, giving the name “human exploitation”


Affect on ecosystems

Affect on ecosystems

  • When a population is overexploited, it affects the ecosystem it used to be a part of.

  • If a population is overexploited, its prey will overpopulate and its predator will begin to die out.


Overexploitation in marine ecosystems

Marin e overexploitation can involve overfishing of Cod, sharks, red snapper, swordfish, tunaand turtles and the accidental trapping of whales, porpoises, and dolphins in fishing nets.
