[From ESA press release]: The Ecological Society of America (ESA) awarded the 2011 Sustainability Science Award to the paper “Rebuilding Global Fisheries,” published in Science in 2009. The study--resulting from collaboration between scientists who initially had conflicting opinions about future scenarios for the sustainability of global fisheries--integrates the data, methods and analyses of a diverse group to address controversies and form a consensual view regarding a long-standing issue in global food security.
ESA's Sustainability Science Award is given to the authors of a scholarly work that makes the greatest contribution to the emerging science of ecosystem and regional sustainability through the integration of ecological and social sciences.
