Supporting Government Investment in Fisheries Management
Session lead: Ray Hilborn, University of Washington
While there has been considerable media coverage of fish disappearing and fisheries collapsing, the real story is that where fisheries are managed intensively, stocks are - on average - increasing and at target levels. This session reviews the data on the abundance of fish stocks and how fisheries management contributes to their sustainability.
