The CFOOD project is made up of a network of scientists whose mission has evolved out of frustration with erroneous stories about fisheries sustainability that continue to appear in mainstream media. Much of this reporting has already been extensively refuted, yet it still lingers in the press. CFOOD identifies these reports and provides a forum for rapid-response by renowned experts, from marine biologists and ecologists to natural resource managers. CFOOD also provides analysis and commentary on the latest emerging fisheries science, as it happens. Whether it’s a critique, appraisal, or just commentary, CFOOD’s science-based approach to communicating the real story on fisheries sustainability seeks to set the record straight.
