How can aquaculture production be sustainably intensified and in an equitable way? To help answer this question, researchers at WorldFish are using foresight analysis to engage stakeholders in discussions about future challenges and solutions.
Fisheries managers and policy makers have traditionally focused on measuring the health of fish stocks and managing for their sustainability.

Including these dimensions in assessments of fishery performance will be key to making the most of our fisheries.
