This report updates previous studies that measured in economic terms the extent of biological losses attributable to overfishing globally. The new estimates assess these 'sunken billions' at $83 billion annually. The report further shows that a clear path can lead to the recovery of these considerable losses, including through significant reduction in global fishing overcapacity. A breakdown between regions is also included, showing that the effort needed to achieve this reform will not be felt equally throughout the world. While the cost of such reform will likely be high, the expected benefits include an increase in biomass by a factor of 2.7, increase in annual harvests by 13 percent, and a 30-fold increase in annual net benefits accrued to the fisheries sector (from $3 billion to $86 billion annually). This urgent call for action is reinforced by the impacts of climate change on fish stocks and fisheries worldwide.

Excerpt from The Railway and Marine World, 1908: Devoted to Steam and Electric Railway, Marine, Grain Elevator, Express, Telegraph and Contractors' Interests The Empire Club of Toronto entertained at luncheon, recently, D. B. Hanna, Third Vice President Canadian Northern Ry., and President Canadian Northern Quebec Ry. And Quebec and Lake St. John Ry., who spoke as follows: The commercial history of Western Canada begins in 1670, with the charter by which Charles the Second constituted Prince Rupert and seventeen of his friends The Governor and Company of Ad venturers Trading into Hudson's Bay, and permitted them to trade over an area of square miles. For these tremendous privileges their only obligation to the monarch 'was to supply him annually with two elk and two black beaver from the country over which they assumed s'overeign rights. The toll of elk and beaver has long since been superseded by a less picturesque method of making annual reports. The difference be tween the elk and beaver of the Gover nor and Company of Adventurers and the voluminous reports of the Cana dian Pacific Railway, the Canadian Northern Railway, and other large concerns is the difference between Western Canada 'without transporta tion and Western Canada with trans portation.

Nature and Development in an East African Marine Park

Rough Waters explores one of the most crucial problems of the contemporary era--struggles over access to, and use of, the environment. It combines insights from anthropology, history, and environmental studies, mounting an interdisciplinary challenge to contemporary accounts of "globalization." The book focuses on The Mafia Island Marine Park, a national park in Tanzania that became the center of political conflict during its creation in the mid-1990s. The park, reflecting a new generation of internationally sponsored projects, was designed to encourage environmental conservation as well as development. Rather than excluding residents, as had been common in East Africa's mainland wildlife parks, Mafia Island was intended to represent a new type of national park that would encourage the participation of area residents and incorporate their ideas. While the park had been described in the project's general management plan as "for the people and by the people," residents remained excluded from the most basic decisions made about the park. The book details the day-to-day tensions and alliances that arose among Mafia residents, Tanzanian government officials, and representatives of international organizations, as each group attempted to control and define the park. Walley's analysis argues that a technocentric approach to conservation and development can work to the detriment of both poorer people and the environment. It further suggests that the concept of the global may be inadequate for understanding this and other social dramas in the contemporary world.
