This news item is about: The decline of marine fisheries has received a lot of attention in recent years, but freshwater fisheries are also under tremendous pressure from pollution, climate change and overfishing. “Inland fisheries are incredibly important,” said Kathryn Fiorella, assistant professor in Population Medicine and Diagnostics Sciences. “In a lot of places in the world, people are getting both a substantial part of their income from these fisheries and also relying on them as a food source.” In her research, Fiorella takes an interdisciplinary approach to understand the links between the health of inland fisheries and the people who depend on them at sites such as Lake Victoria in Kenya.
