Latest Maximum sustainable yield Stories
Biologists from Kiel and Vancouver present a simple way to estimate Maximum Sustainable Yield
According to a new report, over 1 million sharks were harvested from the Atlantic in 2008 by industrial-scale fisheries unhampered by catch or size limits.
A new climate-population model developed by NOAA scientists to study rising ocean temperatures and fishing rates on one East Coast fish population could also forecast the impact of climate change and fishing on other fisheries.
Overfishing threatens many species but a combination of steps could turn that around, two groups long at odds with each other said. Marine ecologists and fisheries management scientists worked together for two years and published their findings Friday in the journal Science. The researchers agreed solutions to overfishing lie not only in management techniques but also in the political will to apply them, even if it initially causes economic disruption, said a release from the U.S.
Efforts to curb overfishing throughout the world are beginning to succeed in five of the worldâ€™s ten large marine ecosystems, according to a comprehensive study published Thursday.
Scientists have joined forces in a groundbreaking assessment on the status of marine fisheries and ecosystems.
As you report (BusinessDay, July 26-27), who should control fisheries isn't simple. Economically, rational fisheries management doesn't always equal sustainable use and would seldom equal sustainable management of the ecosystem those fish live in.
At a time when a quarter of the world's fisheries are considered depleted, can commercial fishermen make more money by fishing less? A study published in the Friday edition of the journal Science says they can - with one condition.
