Ratio of discards from fisheries
Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The graphic shows the amount of discards in the fishing industry from 1988 to 1992. It is broken down into overall, fish, crustaceans and squid categories. Initiatives have been taken by several organisations, seeking to reduce the amount of discarded fish in future fisheries.
