Meeting the world’s growing demand for seafood is a puzzle that crosses national borders, traversing the world’s oceans and freshwater fisheries: Global fish consumption has risen twice as quickly as population growth over the past five decades, and overfishing is creating unexpected problems for humans. As a result, sustainability researchers are intensely focused on how we can meet global demand without depleting the world’s supply of fish.
And while the free market may seem like an unlikely ally to the environment, the finance sector could play a crucial role in solving seafood’s sustainability problem, finds a study published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances.
The authors of the study analyzed media coverage in two major fishing trade publications and data from more than 3,000 shareholders of 160 seafood firms, and they found three major financial sector tools that could push the international fishing industry to be more sustainable: banks, stock exchanges, and activist shareholders.

LUBEC, Maine - American fishermen are expected to get a little more fishing quota under terms of an agreement with Canada.
The countries are home to fisheries for economically important species that cross international boundaries, such as cod and haddock. They reach agreement every year about how to divide catch on eastern Georges Bank, a critical fishing area off New England and Canada.
The New England Fishery Management Council says the U.S is scheduled to get 29% of the 1.4 million pound total allowable catch of cod on eastern Georges Bank in 2020. It's also slated for 54% of the 66 million pound total allowable catch of haddock in the area.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Some of Alaska's salmon fisheries are in jeopardy according to researchers who are looking at this summer's record warm water temperatures.
According to Cook Inlet Keeper Science Director Sue Mauger, early July temperatures on the Deshka river were actually higher than what climate models have predicted through the year 2069 -- 80.4°F compared to the projection of about 79°F.
The temperatures of three other Alaskan rivers outpaced their 2069 projections: the Beaver, Slikok and Funny rivers. These measurements are alarming scientists, who say the long-term health of Alaska's salmon fisheries in a changing climate could be at risk.

Seafood Norway has called on its members to carry out a thorough investigation into why so many salmon have escaped from fish farms in 2019.
The latest figure of more than 280,000 escapes in 30 separate incidents is one of the highest for many years, and seafood minister Harald T Nesvik has bluntly told the industry it is time to get its house in order.
Now the organisation which represents both aquaculture and fishing companies has said it strongly regrets the high figure.
A University of Canterbury study that found there was often less omega 3s in most bottles of fish oil supplements than stated on the label has been retracted due to a miscalculation.
The study, titled Are over-the-counter fish oil supplements safe, effective and accurate with labelling? Analysis of 10 New Zealand fish oil supplements, looked at the accuracy of product labels of the 10 most popular over-the-counter fish oil supplements.
As reported earlier today by Stuff, the paper originally found more than half the supplements weren't true to label in terms of dose and would be unlikely to live up to the health benefits claimed on the bottle.
