Aquatic animals are killed in much higher numbers than land animals; global estimates range from two to three trillion. Most aquatic species are only measured by weight, not by number of animals, so exact numbers are impossible to know. Many of the trillions killed are bycatch, which are non-target species that get trapped in thousands of miles of netting cast around the world every day. Bycatch often includes dolphins and turtles and is typically thrown back into the ocean to die.
