HABITAT DEGRADATION: Most fish and shellfish require high-quality habitat in which to live and reproduce. Habitat quality depends upon physical conditions. Including temperature and sediments. It also depends on chemical and biological factors. Human activities along coastal areas, in upstream drainages, and from offshore activities can, and has, degraded oceanic habitat. Many methods of fishing, such as bottom trawling, have the potential to damage habitat. (For more information, see CRS Report 93-679 ENR, Marine Ecosystem Management.)
