Moratorium on fishing for Sea of Galilee
Catholic World News - May 14, 2010
The government of Israel has announced a ban on fishing on the Sea of Galilee, to address severe depopulation of the fishing stock. The annual catch of St. Peter's Fish, the most famous product of the waters of Galilee, has dropped from 300 tons in 2005 to just 8 tons last year because of overfishing.
