Save the Ocean, Feed the World as Published by editor Brigitte Perreault

Restoring the Oceans Could Feed 1 Billion People A Health SEAFOOD MEAL EACH DAY

Oceana campaigns in the countries that control 25 percent of the world’s wild
fish catch in order to win policy victories that can increase biodiversity in our
oceans and deliver more seafood to the future.
What animal protein requires no fresh water, produces little carbon dioxide,
doesn’t require arable land and provides healthy protein at a cost per pound
lower than beef, chicken, lamb or pork, making it accessible to the world’s poor?
The answer: wild fish.
Unfortunately, studies show that irresponsible fishing has reduced many wild
fish populations to historically low levels right at the moment when the world
needs its oceans more than ever.


There are already 7 billion people on Earth, and this figure is expected to
grow to a staggering 9 billion people by 2050. The planet must produce 70
percent more food to meet the coming hunger needs, according to the United
Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Right now 1 billion people on this
planet suffer from hunger, and we don’t have enough arable land and fresh
water to feed 2 billion more without incurring severe losses to the natural world.
But there is a solution. Studies show that by implementing better and
proven management measures we can potentially increase the global fish
catch by up to 40 percent from current levels.
 We can rebuild ocean biodiversity and abundance and be able to feed nearly a billion people a healthy seafood meal each day.
