Fish stocks: Good news is a drop in the ocean | Editorial | Comment is free | The Guardian

There is an interesting editorial in the Guardian regarding the recent news of the beginnings of a fishery recovery off the Canadian coast.  (For those outside the paywalls of Nature, Hannah over at Culturing Science has nicely reviewed the paper here).

The gist is that despite this bit of sunlight within global overfishing, the situation is still alarming.  For example, the editors point out that:

The article’s worth a read.
