A FERU research team released a working paper examining the current status, existing and potential threats, and plausible future scenarios of fisheries in the South China Sea. Fisheries resources are crucial for supporting coastal livelihoods, food security, and export trade in the South China Sea, yet they are highly threatened by pollution, coastal habitat modification, and excessive and destructive fishing practices.
The paper can be accessed on the OceanCanada website.
