Issue 17 published January 2021
The theme of this edition is The UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. By way of an introduction to this important initiative, we are delighted to present an interview with Vladimir Ryabinin, Head of the IOC (Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO). Expect to hear more as the Decade unfolds!
Our cover story is about the lives of elusive, open-ocean sharks. As mako sharks in particular are fished to dangerously low levels, a global collaboration of scientists races to understand where sharks go and why. This vital research aims to inform the management decisions needed to avert catastrophe for these charismatic and ecologically vital species.
And of course, the usual updates on cutting-edge research, news, reviews, and invitations to get involved with the work of the Marine Biological Association.
