All the seas in the world are over-fished.
80-90% of wild fish stocks have been depleted to unsustainable levels.
Illegal, Unregulated and Unreported fishing threatens the very future of the fishing industry.
An expert group of scientists, business leaders and ocean advocates committed at the 2013 Symposium to helping find pathways to a resilient future for the fishing industry and our oceans.
The foundations of these pathways will:
– Be informed by science
– Acknowledge the pressures on the fishing industry of pirate fishing
– Address the effects of global warming, ocean acidification and agricultural pollution
The ultimate goal of Resilient Seas is to help safeguard fish resources, build marine resilience, provide good livelihoods, and ensure food security.
This initiative is informed by scientific research on the role of transnational corporations as ‘keystone actors’ within marine ecosystems as published in the science journal PLOS ONE.
