Fisheries science is an interdisciplinary field that spans oceanography, biology, marine conservation, ecology, population dynamics, anthropology, economics and more in order to understand and manage fisheries effectively. Scientists use their knowledge of this subject matter to design sustainable fisheries that meet both current needs as well as provide for future generations.

Nearly all global fish stocks are overexploited and one third have already been exploited fully or overexploited since 1974, mostly due to industrial fishing fleets overfishing them.

In 2022, world nations pledged to preserve 30% of land and sea by 2030 (under the so-called 30×30 initiative), although many nations have fulfilled this pledge thus far; many coastal areas still face danger, and overall the protected area count in open ocean environments remains too low.

Krill, one of the world’s most abundant marine species, is currently facing its greatest ever threat to survival. Overfishing, climate change and ocean acidification threaten its existence on an alarming scale; yet new research shows that keeping this tiny shrimp-like creature alive requires more than simply concerted global action.

Researchers recently made an exciting find when they uncovered a bright yellow marine snail in Florida Keys; researchers believe this snail may hold the key to saving an ocean predator. Researchers discovered it living in salty, nutrient-poor environments adapted for survival; playing a vital role in its ecosystem and contributing to overall ecological balance of this region.

At its heart, the story of squid is complex. What we eat at seafood counters or order in restaurants may have traveled thousands of miles before reaching us; how can we ensure the squid we buy or consume is caught sustainably?

One fisherman from Montauk, New York, is being prosecuted for falsifying records to attempt selling overquota fish, underscoring the difficulty of upholding international environmental agreements in international waters. His case underscores this point and marks only the second time a high seas court will address whether or not federal governments can regulate offshore drilling and other activities taking place on open waters; they’ll hear arguments on Oct 18 with a ruling expected by Dec 7 from Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson who also handles multiple other cases dealing with issues such as this and Second Amendment interpretation, speech limitations as well as how best to structure administrative states.
