How Many Fish in the Sea? With Daniel PaulyStreaming Video - 2014
This episode of The Green Interview features Daniel Pauly, arguably the world's most prolific and widely-cited living fisheries scientist. He is an outspoken and often controversial critic of modern fishing practices and the fishing industry. Pauly is the author of three books including, Five Easy Pieces: How Fishing Impacts Marine Ecosystems. He illustrates how the initially-contested view that the fisheries crisis is global in nature eventually became accepted by the mainstream scientific community and the public. Pauly is also the originator of the phrase "shifting baseline syndrome," which describes how each generation of fisheries scientist accepts as a baseline the stock size and species composition that occurred at the beginning of their careers.
