SNAPP: Measuring the status of fisheries and factors leading to success

Principal Investigators:

Ray Hilborn, Caleb McClennen, and Ana Maria Parma

Fisheries are an important source of global food security, income and employment and are closely tied to changes in aquatic biodiversity. Capture fisheries are particularly important for food security in many poor countries and often constitute the major source of animal protein (Hall et al. 2013). The NCEAS working group “Finding common ground in marine conservation and fisheries management” in 2007-2008 provided a major turning point in the understanding of trends in fish stocks, demonstrating that many fish stocks were abundant and increasing... more
