How many times do you think you have eaten fish this year? Fish is delicious and it’s really good for you, but we need to make sure that we don’t over-fish our seas and oceans (Fig. 1). That way there are enough fish left to feed us for all the years to come. We propose three simple rules for fisheries management, which would reduce the impact of fishing on the major fish species. The rules would also help to rebalance the ecosystems and reduce the damage
that fishing causes when boats scrape their nets over the seabed to catch fish.
