30.6.17 | On Friday, June 30, the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research will show the award-winning documentary “An Ocean Mystery, The Missing Catch“.
The film deals with the overexploitation of the oceans and follows renowned fisheries biologist Daniel Pauly, Professor at British Columbia University in Vancouver, and his international team of experts as they gather information to calculate the world’s total fish catches.
Pauly’s work shows that the real figures of global catch have been drastically underestimated and this marine resource is ebbing away faster than anticipated.
The documentary is produced by the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation. It is an appeal to governments of coastal countries to closely examine their fish stocks so that marine resources can be managed sustainably in the future.
Interested parties are cordially invited to the screening. Professor Pauly will be answering questions afterwards.
