The Ocean`s Twilight Zone can feed the world, but at what cost?
Description: Life in the twilight zone constitutes a huge potential source of fishmeal and Omega 3 fatty acids needed to feed the world population. However, it exists in a kind of "no man's water", where there are no rules for fishing. Critical for assessing the resilience of the community and thus develop sustainable management strategies is a lack of understanding of the biological processes in the twilight zone making it impossible to accurately estimate the fishing pressure the stocks can sustain. There are huge untapped resources of protein in the deep sea, but any potential exploitation should be done with caution, states the research community. [Source: Technical University of Denmark]
