Like birds, marine fish aggregate to breed or feed

  Spawning aggregations are the only time most marine fish breed the next generation of fish

  Badly managed fishing on aggregations can quickly deplete fish stocks, making our oceans un-healthy and less resiliant, which affects the livelihoods of those who depend on the fish
