With the goal of balancing sustainable fisheries with a diverse seafood market, new research measured the composition of species offered in the marketplace compared to what was available in the local ecosystem.Continue reading "New study encourages harvesting, consuming wider variety of fish"
A worldwide study on the impacts of bottom trawling, which accounts for a quarter of the world’s seafood harvest and can negatively affect marine ecosystems, has found that seabeds are in good health where trawl fisheries are sustainably managed.Continue reading "GSO professor part of a worldwide study on impacts of bottom trawling on health of seabeds"
