"A healthy marine ecosystem is like a well-oiled machine. When all of its parts are intact and working, the ecosystem can provide important goods and services, such as livelihoods, protein-rich diets, waste water epuration and coastal tourism. When the machine breaks down, due to overfishing, the benefits it provides are lost."
