Report Reveals Low Ocean Food Production


A yearly report on the status of the world’s oceans headed by UCSB professor Ben Halpern found high marks for biodiversity and coastal livelihoods and economies, but a low mark for food production. The analysis, called the Ocean Health Index, scores categories on a 100-point scale, with the higher numbers the better. The 33 score for food production, scientists say, is alarming due to the world’s ever-increasing population. For more information, visit oceanhealthindex.org.
