The Sea Around Us Principal Investigator, Dr. Daniel Pauly, continues to be among the top 0.01% of the world’s scientists based on the impact of his publications.
Post-secondary students interested in fisheries science are invited to connect with the Sea Around Us – Indian Ocean at the University of Western Australia (UWA) and learn about four programs available to immerse themselves in this fascinating discipline.
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.
