Fisheries management is good for fish

Where fisheries are well managed, fish populations can recover. That is according to new research co-authored by UCT applied mathematician Dr Carryn de Moor.“Have overfished fish populations been able to recover with better management? This is the question that an international group of researchers sought to answer by collating and analysing a database of 882 fish stocks, comprising nearly half of the world’s fish catch. They found that the abundance of fish has on average increased and that good management has led to healthy or improving fish abundance. The oceans are a vital source of food for many people across the globe. Fish – an important component of the world food system – account for about 20% of the animal protein and almost 7% of all protein eaten by humans. This number is even higher in some developing regions.”
