What has happened to fish populations as a result, primarily, of commercial fishing activity?

Answer There has been a decline in population sizes of commercial fish stocks.

Not only have the population sizes of fish stocks been reduced by overfishing, but the historic tendency to harvest the larger members of a species has led to directional selection leading the remaining fish to be, not only smaller but to have lower fertility.
