What are fisheries, and why is their sustainability so important to people worldwide? What has been done to the fisheries in the past and what is being done to preserve them in the future? Through the research of two world renowned Mote fisheries scientists, Forum participants will come to understand the historical significance of fisheries along with the damage done to fisheries worldwide in the past several decades.  Today, scientific research at Mote is playing a key role in not only helping sustain fisheries worldwide, but also in helping the fisheries to expand to meet an ever growing demand for protein in diets, and these efforts will be discussed in detail.
