What are the benefits of overfishing a lake?

I am doing a study on over and under fishing an area lake and what impact it has on the eco system.


Answer by  mrdeleo (69)

There are no benefits. Overfishing a lake wipes out several species of fish that are integral to the homeostatic balance within the lake. No fish means no food for other species as well as no regulatory mechanisms to keep the lake clean. The lake is a habitat that is home to several other species that rely on the fish.

The benefits of overfishing a lake are that the fish do not become over populated. This is the biggest benefit, to keep the fish population under control, the other benefit is the finincial benefit gained from the fish.

One of the benefits might be that less fishing pressure will be applied over time. If there are no fish to catch, less anglers will have the desire to fish that lake and stocks should eventually return to normal.

There are very few benefits of overfishing a lake. The only advantage of overfishing a lake would be to remove fish that you no longer want there. Overfishing a lake will cause unwanted vegetation to over power the lake and lots of fish will start to die or not grow properly.

I don't think there are any benefits. There are more negatives to overfishing in the lake than actually positives. So don't over fish.

I am not sure that overfishing a lake would have any real benefits. The insect population would grow, since fish eat the insects - probably not a good thing. The smaller fish would overpopulate, which would be bad for their health. This would happen because we catch the larger fish and the smaller ones are their food. Balance is healthy.
