Global fishing trade shows net increase which world can manage sustainably, says FAO

9 July 2018

Around one in three fish stocks is unsustainably netted, representing a “huge challenge” to all countries on the planet, according to a new report from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) released on Monday. The data indicate that on average today, people eat more than double the amount consumed in 1961.

Audun Lem, Deputy Director of the agency’s Fisheries and Aquaculture Policy and Resources Division, spoke to Daniel Johnson about the findings.
