A major war between the United States and Russia could make global fish catches fall by as much as 30 per cent.
Marine fish could serve as a crucial global emergency food supply in times of crisis, if marine ecosystems were in a healthy state to start with.
We found 92 threatened species reported in industrial catch records. This is shameful and unnecessary.
Bushfires not only destroy things on land, they can also have an impact on our seafood industry including our oyster farms.
Mercury levels in Pacific sardines could rise by as much as 14 per cent if greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise.

Without an array of ecosystems and species, it's tough for farmers to grow crops or ranchers to raise animals.
Globalised fishing can leave workers vulnerable to exploitation.
A lack of sustainability, profitability and transparency in the global fishing industry is exacerbating the problem of slave-like working conditions for crew. Here are the warning signs to look out for.
