New report on how overfishing risks leaving investors strandedNovember 01, 2017
The world’s oceans are one of mankind’s most important shared resources, providing a critical source of protein. But there is increasing scientific evidence that marine seafood resources are being overexploited, leading to the risk of the collapse of key fisheries, with associated environmental, social and economic impacts.
The Fish Tracker Initiative sought to better understand the role of listed companies in seafood extraction, to help identify opportunities and risks for investors with exposure to the sector.
This has resulted in a new report just launched by Fish Tracker, Empty nets, which details how poor disclosure and poor sustainability management across publicly listed companies with revenues from seafood are placing investors at risk.
