The Atlas of Global Marine Fisheries

A Security & Sustainability Forum Webinar
Saturday, July 29, 2017 - 3:15pm EDT

A webinar recording Daniel Pauly and Dirk Zeller - The Sea Around Us. Until now, there has been only one source of data on global fishery catches: information reported to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations by member countries. An extensive, ten-year study conducted by The Sea Around Us Project of the University of British Columbia shows that this catch data is fundamentally misleading. Many countries under report the amount of fish caught (some by as much as 500%), while others such as China significantly over report their catches.

The Global Atlas of Marine Fisheries is the first and only book to provide accurate, country-by-country fishery data. This groundbreaking information has been gathered from independent sources by the world's foremost fisheries experts, and edited by Daniel Pauly and Dirk Zeller of the Sea Around Us Project.
