Nature has its own way -sometimes subtle, sometimes brazen- to let us know that we are doing things wrong.
During the week of 20-27 September 2019, environmentalists across the world organized a series of events that were held under the umbrella of the Global Climate Strike.
Appearing in everything from sushi rolls to sandwiches, tuna are among the world’s favourite fish. But are our current tuna fishing habits sustainable?
Probably not, according to a new global database of tuna catches created by researchers at the University of British Columbia and University of Western Australia.
In a study published in Fisheries Research, scientists from the Sea Around Us initiative found that global tuna catches have increased over 1,000 per cent in the past six decades, fueled by a massive expansion of industrial fisheries.
Tricky question that is unlikely to be answered by a Sea Around Us researcher.
Researchers from the Sea Around Us initiative at the University of British Columbia arrived in Dakar to introduce scientists involved with the Commission sous régionale des pêches or CSRP to three new methods for fish stock assessments.
