Sunken Billions
Global marine capture fisheries are an underperforming global asset. The Sunken Billions study shows that the difference between the potential and actual net economic benefits from marine fisheries is in the order of $50 billion per year – equivalent to more than half the value of the global seafood trade. The cumulative economic loss to the global economy over the last three decades is estimated to be in the order of two trillion dollars.

Tales from the Tinny - Looks a bit fishy, sounds a bit fishy ... smells? Very fishy! Facebook

The Future of Fishing - Every year we consume more and more fish, not just collectively, but on a per capita basis. To keep up with demand, the domestication of fish has greatly increased. However there are four fish which dominate the global seafood market, singled out by us to be exploited and propagated, the sea bass, the cod, salmon and tuna.

Why the allure of fishing has little to do with fish - Recreational fishing is a popular pastime, and writing about it seems to be too. Justine Sloane-Lees examines the impulses that draw people to fishing, and the considerable body of prose and poetry that explores the joy of angling.
