Keywords:Environmental Change, Traditional Fishing, Natural Resources, Marine Pollution, Climate Change, The Role of Mass Media
The growing population of Karachi has changed the character of the city to a great extent. Historically, this area consisted of a few thousand fishing families. Even today there are many Goths on the coast of Karachi whose livelihood is traditional fishing. The passing months and years have brought changes in the coastal communities, but the people living here have been able to maintain their traditions to a large extent. The changing social, economic and environmental factors of the city have added to the problems of the fishing families. The biggest threat is to traditional fishing. The purpose of this study is to examine the problems arising as a result of environmental changes and their impact on the fishing family. Massive increase in the population of Karachi city, water pollution, increasing role of various mafias in the city, climate change etc. are some of the reasons due to which traditional fishing activities have been adversely affected. In addition, the objectives of the current research include examining the role of mass media to find out to what extent mass media is playing an active role in informing the people because the effects of environmental changes and climate change are directly affecting the general public. They are set on people and especially on fishermen. For the past several decades, reports on climate change have been continuously issued by different meteorological organizations at the global level and the current climate situation reinforces all these concerns that the main indicators of climate change in different parts of Pakistan are increasing. and explain the global trend of a steady rise in minimum temperatures. However, due to its high interannual variability and the country's (asteroid rain) rainfall pattern, the region has seen highly variable change patterns in the rainfall regime. Pakistan faces all kinds of hydrometeorological hazards, including rural flooding. , riverine floods, urban floods as well as agricultural and urban droughts. Hence the present research has attempted to cover all these elements.
