For the week of 20 February 2017

Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

First off, I have two important announcements to make:

1) I'm pleased to say we have a new addition to the OpenChannels Team, Allie Brown. You can thank Allie for finding and sharing the bulk of the content on OpenChannels these days. If there's any information you want to be sure gets shared, please feel free to contact her at abrown [at] openchannels.org.

2) We're now including the (estimated*) costs of acquring the full-text of articles behind publisher pay-walls. In addition, we'll report at the top of each Literature Update the total cost of purchasing one copy of each paper in the issue. The total cost to purchase each pay-walled article in this issue comes to (drum-roll please...) USD $790.45. Which, you can quote Nick as saying: "this is wholly unacceptable."

*We'll say estimated because it's possible the publisher could change the price in the time between when we add the item, and we email it out here. Though, that's highly unlikely.

Now, onto the literature!

The World Bank has published a new report, The Sunken Billions Revisited: Progress and Challenges in Global Marine Fisheries. "The primary objective of this study is to reinforce the messages of the 2009 publication and to catalyze calls for accelerating and scaling up the international effort aimed at addressing the global fisheries crisis. The analysis reveals economic losses of about $83 billion in 2012, compared with the optimal global maximum economic yield equilibrium."

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let us know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email Allie directly at abrown [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner & Allie Brown
