    Marine fishes and their habitats, from coastel waters to the deep sea, are imperilled by numerous threats, such as overexploitation, pollution, and habitat destruction. Spear-fishing mainly threatens sedentary coastel fishes. One problem when studying threatened fish species is generally the shortage of quantitative data, for instance about population size and life cycles. Marine reserves can be the solution to problems of preservation of some species and habitats. Existing laws on conservation must be enforced by strong control and inspection measures: new regulations must be created; international agencies can provide advice and expertise.
