Featured Blog: Should we stop fishing?

The UK’s New Economics Foundation has written a report arguing that all fishing in Europe should cease for up to nine years to let stocks recover. 

Stefano Mariani, - Reader in Wildlife Biology at the University of Salford, has posted an interesting blog-response to this on the Global Food Security website.
He argues that while “the proposal by NEF is certainly an elegant economic exercise,” it is not “grounded firmly in the biology of fish stocks, or in the trophic balance of the world population, or, for that matter, in the practicalities of policy implementation.”
