On Our Minds Series: Paul Anderson~Coral Reef Aquarium Fisheries

Co-presented with Mystic Aquarium

Mystic Aquarium research scientist Paul Anderson discusses the coral reef aquarium fisheries. Coral reefs are some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet, but they are threatened by climate change, ocean acidification, pollution, and overfishing.  In addition to their importance as a food resource for people, fish are also collected from coral reefs worldwide for the marine aquarium trade. Scientists at Mystic Aquarium and partner institutions are working with stakeholders in the trade to improve fisheries management, upgrade the value chain from volume-driven to value-driven, and develop aquaculture to offset fishing pressure for vulnerable species.
