The Impacts of Fishing

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, as they are known, address global challenges like poverty, inequality and climate change and serve as a blueprint to a more sustainable future.

As a global education leader, working to support students in becoming lifelong learners and citizens of the world, Britannica educators have partnered with the United Nations Global Goals to call upon schools, educators and students to amplify, reflect and act on these challenges that affect every one of us.

The following lesson will teach students about the responsible stewardship of our oceans and rivers by analysing the impacts of fishing on marine life. It supports UN Sustainable Development Goal 14: Life Below Water, which aims to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.

A region-specific version of the lesson plan is available for educators in Australia, New Zealand and Asia (including mainland China). To download your copy, click the “Download Lesson” button and select the PDF document for your appropriate region:
