|Abstract||When most people think of fishing, we imagine relaxing in a boat and patiently reeling in the day’s catch. But modern industrial fishing -- the kind that stocks our grocery shelves -- looks more like warfare. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Jennifer Jacquet explain overfishing and its effects on ecosystems, food security, jobs, economies, and coastal cultures.|
|Description||Ocean solutions: This article pulls together the full spectrum of solutions to ocean challenges, with a handy graphic. Jacquet et al. 2011. Scanning the Oceans for Solutions. Solutions. New models for sustainable, local seafood: Similar to community supported agriculture (CSAs) on land, community supported fisheries can deliver fresh seafood and ensure fishermen get a fair price – see, for example, Dock to Dish, which supports local fishermen and ensures traceability. There are also ways of farming seafood (aka aquaculture) sustainably – see, for example, Greenwave, which has innovated vertical farming of oyster, mussels, clams, and seaweeds. Community-based management: This video focused on industrial fishing, but small-scale fisheries are responsible for around half of the global catch, and are critical to food security, coastal economies, and cultures. Given these high stakes it's important to ensure small-scale fisheries have the support they need as they transition to and maintain sustainable practices. Efforts such as Blue Ventures, the Waitt Institute’s Blue Halo Initiative, and Rare’s Fish Forever program are working with coastal communities to develop and implement sustainable management.Seafood sustainability ratings: The Seafood Watch program of the Monterey Bay Aquarium evaluates and rates the sustainability of seafood to help consumers make more informed choices. Seafood fraud: One of the biggest challenges is the amount of fraud in the seafood industry – 30+% of seafood is mislabeled – so even buyers trying to make sustainable choices may end up unwittingly supporting overfishing. There is a great need for more efforts to improve the traceability of seafood. Illegal fishing: Having good laws in place is one thing; enforcing them is another. Collaborative efforts to track and intercept illegal fishing are underway, such as Global Fishing Watch. Illegal, unregulated, and unreported (IUU) fishing is commonplace. And illegal fishing is often associated with other illegal activities from slavery, to drug, weapons, and human trafficking. For more, see Ian Urbina’s Outlaw Ocean series for the New York Times. Data on global fish catches: The Sea Around Us Project at University of British Columbia provides information on the status and trends of fishing all over the world. The history of overfishing: This article describes the history of overfishing over the last few hundred years, and what it does to ecosystems from coral reefs, to kelp forests, to estuaries.

Many more resources on ocean issues: The Ocean Collectiv has curated a set of resources on ocean conservation issues from fishing and seafood, to plastics, climate change, and protected areas.|
|Learning Resource Type||Video Lecture|
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
