As a key source of economic security, food and nutrition - as well as cultural identity - fisheries are deeply connected to the livelihood of millions of people worldwide. Yet, poorly managed fisheries can have devastating and lasting impacts to aquatic ecosystems, reducing the long-term sustainability of fishing activities themselves. To safeguard both fisheries and broader biodiversity, continuous efforts from scientists, policymakers and the general public alike are needed now more than ever.
This collection brings together some of the latest research on the factors influencing fisheries, the ecological and social impacts fisheries are causing, and how we can mitigate and meet sustainability goals in light of climate change.
