Fish for the future

Today, 60% of the world’s major marine ecosystems are degraded or threatened from unsustainable practices (www.unesco.org, 2015)Since 1950, there has been a 90% decline in the populations of large predatory fish such as tuna and cod (Myers & Worm, 2003).

We must ACT NOW to ensure that we will have fish for the future.
