Oceans can be healthier, even with climate change

New research by EDF and academic partners gives hope

Most of the world’s fisheries can yield more fish, food and prosperity with effective management—even in the face of climate change, according to new research by Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and our academic partners at the University of California Santa Barbara and Oregon State University. While global warming is a serious threat, improving fisheries management is the single most important thing we can do to meet these challenges.
