Herring is one of few marine species that has adapted to the brackish waters of the Baltic Sea. However, even though the stock has decreased to historically low levels and that the coastal fishing is in crisis, Sweden chooses to wait to take actions. Politicians and those in power can reverse the negative trend.
With “The good herring”, BalticWaters wants to highlight the problems with today’s fisheries management, and to present solutions. It is time to act, before it is too late.
