Squids in the Spotlight: Unregulated Squid Fisheries Are Headed for Disaster (Photos, Video & Report)

"Squids in the Spotlight" uncovers the huge scale of the global squid fishery, which has grown over 10-fold since 1950 to almost 5 million tonnes annually in the last decade and is now jeopardising marine ecosystems around the world.

Operating out-of-sight in international waters, the meteoric rise of squid fishing and resulting demand for the species has no historical precedent, with some areas seeing a more than 800% increase in the number of vessels in just the last five years. In some instances, armadas of over 500 vessels have descended on the borders of national waters to plunder the ocean, with their collective lights being visible from space.

Campaigners are calling for a strong Global Ocean Treaty, which could have prevented this situation and which will be crucial in stopping future fisheries expanding without restrictions.
