On Our Plate: World Fisheries Day

Posted by on November 21st, 2016 | 0 Comments »

World Fisheries Day, celebrated on November 21, helps to highlight the importance of water to the lives it sustains. A UN study reported that more than two-thirds of the world’s fisheries have been depleted and more than one-third are in a state of decline. This week in On Our Plate, we learn about steps global organizations are taking to sustain the world’s fisheries and the lives they support.
