Cartoons about fishing

As the person in charge of writing yestarday´s journal hasn´t done it, here you have some cartoons related to the concepts we studied yesterday. Can any of you explain what do these cartoons refer to?

I don't understand very well the meaning of the pictures, but I think it's refered to overfishing. As people fished a lot, they had to look for other options such as the close seasons, but the problems continued, so there is another option to fight against this: aquaculture.
Am I right?
See you!

The cartoons are related to different concepts we studied yesterday. There are three different concepts reflected in them:

- The first one is about aquaculture, fish farms and the way they produce fish there.

- Cartoons number two and three refer to the consequences of overfishing and pollution, the main problems that affect fishing. Actually, the "Hespérides", the oceanographic research ship of the Spanish army, is studying the desertification of the bottom of the sea, caused by pollution and overfishing.

- The last cartoon refers to fishing agreements. Sometimes these agreements are harmful for the countries that allow other ships to fish in their territorial waters, because they are exhausting their fisheries and the population doesn´t receive direct compensations. Only the members of the governments take advantage of these agreements.

Have a good night.
