S.O.S.! Can fishing actually lead to a healthier ecosystem?

Saving our Oceans & Seas is important to all of us. A healthy ecosystem matters. But how can we best do that and balance the needs of humans as well?

Thirty years ago, New Zealand’s fisheries – along with much of the rest of the world’s – were on the brink of disaster. Overfishing led to declining fish populations. Something had to change.

The result? The Quota Management System, or QMS. Today commercial fishing off New Zealand provides fish for consumers worldwide, an excellent livelihood for fishers, and a stronger, healthier ocean and fish population.

How does it work? Come to New Zealand with scholar Johan Norberg and find out!
