    Description
    Fishing and the places where fish live hold a special place in each of our lives. We are recreational fishermen and environmentalists who get joy from simply being on the water — sparkling brook or the restless ocean. We have each seen waters we love damaged by overuse, too little care, and the effects of pollution. We have seen the conflicts among recreational fishermen, commercial fishermen, conservationists, regulators, and scientists grow. No aquatic ecosystem is immune from the forces that contribute to overfishing and degradation of habitat.
    Given our personal experience we found Fishing for Answers: Making Sense of the Global Fish Crisis compelling. This report is a much needed contribution to the ongoing debate about the scale of and response to the “global fisheries crisis.” The current alarming rates of fish stock depletion and degradation of aquatic ecosystems serve none of those who has a stake in the fate of the oceans, rivers, and lakes, and the vast resources that they contain. None of us wants to contemplate a time when our world’s rivers and seas are drained of the richness and abundance of life that sustains not only our fishing pastime, but more importantly the lives of millions of people who depend upon fisheries for their food source and livelihood.
