Rising Tide #104 – Rashid Sumaila is Counting on Fish

Director of ocean and fisheries economics at the University of British Columbia, our guest this week, Dr. Rashid Sumaila, has used economic modeling applied to global fisheries to come up with some dramatic and world changing conclusions. He talks with us about everything from how government subsidies threaten coastal seas to how living fish have ten time the climate value than they do dead and eaten or how marine protected areas act like a life insurance policy. So, perk up your ears for a fascinating conversation.

‘Rising Tide, the Ocean Podcast’, is a refreshing, irreverent dive into the lives, work, and explorations of some of today’s leading and diverse ocean voices. Each half hour episode co-hosted by David Helvarg and Vicki Nichols-Goldstein sails through lively discussions with our guests about marine life, culture, and critical issues affecting our rapidly changing seas. Informative, enlightening, and often humorous, it is an invaluable resource for anyone passionate about understanding, enjoying, and protecting our salty blue world.
