In recent years, scientists have recorded dramatic drops in fisheries catches around the world. But what if the declines are even greater than we’ve realized? Dr. Jackson examines how we know what we think we know about the changing oceans with some of the top names in marine science and history in his new edited volume, Shifting Baselines. He will discuss how skewed visions of the past have led to disastrous marine practices and why historical perspective is critical to re-vitalize fisheries and ecosystems.
