THE POTENTIAL TO SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT AND FEED 1 BILLION PEOPLE A HEALTHY PROTEIN MEAL EVERY DAY

In planning for over two years, SeaFood Commons website launches with an ambitious goal to apply sound management reforms to global fisheries around the world. This could generate annual increases exceeding 16 million metric tons (MMT) in catch, $53 billion in profit, and 619 MMT in biomass relative to business as usual. With appropriate reforms, recovery can happen quickly, with the median fishery taking under 10 years to reach recovery targets. Results show that common sense reforms to fishery management would dramatically improve overall fish abundance while increasing food security and profits.
