On the fourth episode of the FishBase and SeaLifeBase Anniversary Podcast, Cornelia Nauen shares the other side of the FishBase story, that is, the effort that had to be done to gather some seed money and bring the project to life.
Twenty-six fish and invertebrate populations that live in the waters of eight West African countries are likely overfished or at risk of being overfished, a new Fisheries Centre Research Report reveals.
Preliminary results from the application of the CMSY and LBB stock assessment methods to fish populations in the EEZs of Cape Verde, The Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mauritania, Senegal and Sierra Leone, indicate that some stocks – such as that of cassava croaker off the coast of Liberia – are strongly overexploited.
The Sea Around Us is pleased to announce that the marine fisheries catch data and derived indicators have been updated to the year 2016.
After months of intensive work by our teams in Canada, the Philippines and Australia, we can now proudly say that time series with 67 years’ worth of data (1950-2016) are available for free on www.seaaroundus.org.
Ms. Jessika Woroniak, who is a research assistant with the Sea Around Us since 2017, has been awarded the James Robert Thompson Fellowship on the recommendation of the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of British Columbia and a committee of faculty members from the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs (SPPGA).
