At least 13 species of fish have been harvested beyond sustainable levels, and key species of fish like hamour orange-spotted grouper , shaari spangled emperor , farsh painted sweetlips and kanaad Spanish mackerel have been overexploited up to five times the sustainable limit, they added. The UAE Sustainable Fisheries programme has therefore been launched to ensure sustainable fishing, and it will be implemented from to Under this programme, advanced research and monitoring of UAE fisheries will be undertaken, new legislation developed and implemented, and traditional fishing knowledge gathered to better inform decision making.

Landmark new study that includes small-scale, subsistence and illegal fishing shows a strong decline in catches as more fisheries are exhausted. Global fish catches are falling three times faster than official UN figures suggest, according to a landmark new study, with overfishing to blame. Seafood is the critical source of protein for more than 2. To provide a better estimate, more than researchers around the world spent a decade finding other data to fill in the gaps. The results, published in the journal Nature Communications , show the annual catches between and were much bigger than thought, but that the decline after the peak year of was much faster than official figures.
