Overfishing in inland waters reduces biodiversity and threatens health
Systematic overfishing of fresh waters occurs worldwide but is largely unrecognized because of weak reporting and because other pressures can obscure fishery declines, according to an article in the December 2005 issue of BioScience. View News Article (2005-12-01)

Unfavorable ocean conditions likely cause of low 2007 salmon returns along West Coast
NOAA scientists are reviewing unusual environmental conditions in the Pacific Ocean as the likely culprit for the dramatically low returns of Chinook and coho salmon to rivers and streams along the West Coast of the United States in 2007. View News Article (2008-03-04)

NOAA: Tortugas marine reserve yields more, larger fish

UBC researcher discovers ancient "stress hormone" in pre-historic fish
A University of British Columbia zoologist has discovered a new corticosteroid hormone in the sea lamprey, an eel-like fish and one of the earliest vertebrates dating back 500 million years. These findings have shed light on the evolution of steroid hormones and may help conservation and management efforts for lampreys. View News Article (2010-07-23)

Tropical regions to be hardest hit by fisheries shifts caused by climate change: UBC research
Major shifts in fisheries distribution due to climate change will affect food security in tropical regions most adversely, according to a study led by the Sea Around Us Project at The University of British Columbia. View News Article (2009-10-08)

Sustainable fishing is possible and necessary
In the 1990s the European Commission approved a series of management measures to avoid the over-exploitation of fishery resources. A study carried out by the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC) now reveals that the Common Fisheries Policy in Europe has promoted the extension of the European fleet into more vulnerable eco-systems such as deep waters. However, the next reform of the fishery... View News Article (2010-05-19)

Understanding of global freshwater fish and fishing too shallow, scientists say
What sounds counter-intuitive to an activity commonly perceived as quiet is the broad recommendation of scientists at Michigan State University (MSU) recommending that small-scale fishing in the world's freshwater bodies must have a higher profile to best protect global food security. View News Article (2014-11-06)
