Title:Follow that fish : assessing the scope and value of nearshore fishing in Hawai'i

Abstract:Three-fourths of Hawai'i's reef fish species are seriously depleted. To preserve and build back these populations, government policymakers and community leaders need to know how many fish are actually harvested every year. Reported sales account for $3 million of the annual nearshore fish catch, but this research estimates that another $7-$13 million is undocumented. Interventions to preserve Hawai'i's fish should include better monitoring of catch and post-catch distribution and improved consumer education.
Description:This East-West Wire is based on Follow that fish: Uncovering the hidden blue economy in coral reef fisheries by Shanna Grafeld, Kirsten L. L. Oleson, Lida Teneva, and John N. Kittinger, published in 2017 in PLOS One,
