The Ocean Prosperity Roadmap: Fisheries and Beyond was a collection of research launched at the Economist’s 2015 World Ocean Summit. It was designed to inform decision makers, including governments and investors, on effective ocean and coastal resource management strategies to maximize economic, conservation and societal benefits.
This set of infographics was derived from the research collection, which demonstrated how governance and management reform can reduce poverty while achieving economic gains, increasing food production, replenishing fish and conserving ocean health for future generations. This is especially true in the case of wild capture fisheries. Taken together, the collection of seven studies creates a comprehensive overview of what’s possible to achieve in the ocean economy and emerging best practices on how to get there.
