This free course, Fishing: can it be sustainably managed? aims to explore the ways in which fishing, an economic activity, can also be understood as an environmental problem. Video, charts, tables and activities will introduce the UK commercial fishing industry and how management techniques are applied in a quest to achieve sustainable fish stocks. The interplay of historical, economic, social, political and geographical factors that shape the UK fishing industry are also considered.
