I saw a post about an article on overfishing sharks in the high seas, where the authors provided evidence on the reasons why we need Marine Protected Areas in the High Seas.
Listen to the episode to find out what the High Seas are and why Marine Protected Areas will be so hard to manage/enforce in the future.

The High Seas take up most of the Oceans, but they are not governed by any one entity. The lack of governance opens the High Seas to plundering of fish and allowing more pollution that is unregulated.
There is a meeting taking place this week at the UN in New York City this week with the goal for countries to sign a treaty to protect the high seas and manage its resources better. Not all countries are interested though. It could be a tough sell.
Check out the episode and let me know in the Facebook Group whether you think all of the countries will sign on to the treaty.
Enjoy the Podcast!!!

There is a big United Nations meeting that is going to happen in New York City soon that some researchers say will dictate the long term survival of the Ocean. The meeting has been in the works for years with countries expected to sign on to a pact that will manage the high seas over a number of issues from water quality to fisheries.
Scientists have published on the way the high seas (ocean areas that are not governed by any country) have been treated in the past and have been outspoken on the need to better protect them.
Some researchers say the oceans will be in trouble if countries do not sign on to protect the high seas at this meeting.
Do you think that is true? Do you think Accords such as the Paris Climate Change Accord will help reduce climate change impact?
Let me know in the Facebook Group.
Enjoy the Podcast!!!
