Media Highlight: Dalhousie researchers map global footprint of industrial fishing
With the help of big data and technology originally designed to prevent ships from colliding, a team of researchers has stitched together the most detailed map yet of fisheries around the globe, which sheds light on just how intensive industrial fishing has become.
Its footprint, which has never before been quantified, is gargantuan.
More than half of the ocean's surface is blanketed with industrial fishing activity – a spread that eclipses the amount of land tied up in agriculture on the earth by a factor of four, according to the report, which was authored by an international team that includes academic researchers from Dalhousie University in Halifax.
