In this Economist video, they look at ocean health issues including overfishing, pollution and climate change. Maintaining rich, diverse ecosystems is key for the health of the ocean – and ultimately the survival of humanity. Fisheries regulations are key to preventing overfishing and preserving biodiversity, and one element of this is to establish marine protected areas.
The Economist filmed OceanMind at work supporting governments with the enforcement of their fisheries regulations against both foreign and domestic vessels. In Thailand we see OceanMind working with government officials to enforce Port State Measures, an international treaty designed to prevent IUU fishing.
