Both the oceans and our fisheries are in trouble. According to a report in Science, in a worst-case scenario all fish and seafood species worldwide would crash by 2048.
And as fish populations are depleted, fishing itself becomes increasingly perilous. Fishermen race to catch what they can to support their families, no matter the weather or the danger.
But there is an innovative solution called catch shares, which gives fishermen a direct stake in the recovery of fish populations — while making their job safer and more profitable.
Take Action: Tell Congress catch shares are the key to ocean sustainability.
