To shed some light on the complex issues of global fisheries
I wanted to share with you a very insightful video from Dr. Ray Hilborn who is aprofessor in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences from the University of Washington. Dr. Hilborn specializes in natural resource management and conservation, and is considered a leading expert in quantitative techniques for determining the abundance of fish stocks.
In the video, Dr. Hilborn discusses the relative environmental impacts of world capture fisheries compared to other forms of animal and land-based production. He also discusses the status of global capture fisheries based on current findings from he and his colleagues (ironically this includes other researchers who he once heavily criticized for their views on the subject). I think you might be surprised on what they discovered!! The video is approximately 20 minutes long, but is very informative. Enjoy!
