Why major fishing grounds of the world are located in temperate regions




Why major fishing grounds of the world are found in temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere:

  • Most of the coastlines are irregular hence favoring fish breeding.
  • There are large/more landmasses in the Northern Hemisphere than the south.
  • Continental shelves in this region are wide and shallow that favour the growth of planktons.
  • The cool climate experienced in the region favours fishing activities.
  • The regions are washed by many cold oceans currents that favour the existence of planktons/ fish.
  • There are many rivers that pour their water in the oceans thus providing nutrients for planktons
