How Israel Can Help Stem Over-Fishing in the South China Sea
South China Sea littoral states should look to Israel for innovative solutions.
By Avi Jorisch
While world leaders and Asian policymakers focus on disputes in the South China Sea, a less-publicized threat looms right over the horizon: over-fishing. As an important natural resource is rapidly depleted, millions, even billions, could be affected. Israeli innovation has an important role to play in averting catastrophe.
The South China Sea is one of the most important economic, military, and environmental locations on earth. Ten countries and territories surround it, and over $5.3 trillion worth of international trade traverses their shores annually. The area covers approximately 1.4 million square miles, and its rich marine ecosystem provides food and jobs to millions. Around the world, one in five people depend on fish as their primary source of protein, and over 200 million rely on fishing for their livelihood and food security. According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, however, more than 80 percent of the world’s fish species are depleted or are not producing at maximum capacity.
