Fisherman Danilo Latin (L) and his worker sort through fish on the deck of his ship in Savudrija June 26, 2013. Most of the 3,700 fishermen who ply their trade in Croatia's eastern Adriatic fear that the country's accession to the European Union on July 1, and strict new laws and regulations that come with it, may drive the last nail into their coffin. Croatia's Adriatic is small and relatively shallow and fishermen use traditional nets that are not compliant with the Common Fishing Policy, modeled mostly on fishing in the Atlantic.

Overfishing and other similar threats have caused the number of fish and animals in the ocean to have halved since 1970 with conservation group WWF calling the situation ‘critical’.

Not only fish are dying out: The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) study tracked the populations of some 1,234 species, such as seals, turtles, dolphins and sharks.

“There is a massive, massive decrease in species which are critical,” said Marco Lambertini, director general of WWF International.

When it comes to dinner staples such as tuna or mackerel, populations have fallen by a shocking 75 percent since the seventies, according to a study by the WWF and the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).

Unfortunately all the threats are man-made. The study claims that the global fishing fleet is too big, and between $14bn and $35bn go into supporting it every year.

Other dangers include coral reefs and mangroves damaging, coastal development, pollution and climate change. The latter has a more direct impact on the ocean’s ecosystem than one might imagine, as rising temperatures increase acidity in waters.
