Fish are the last wild animals that the world eats at global scale. Today, however, the majority of wild fisheries are pushed beyond their limits. Currently, nearly 85% of global fish stocks are either exploited or, even worse, depleted. Rises in the global demand for fish are expected to continue, doubling by 2050 to an astonishing 230 million tons. Meeting this demand will create a market increase valued at upwards of several hundred billion dollars. Dynamic Planet works closely with entrepreneurs who are improving the sustainable seafood value chain.
