A team of scientists from across the US, Canada, Europe and Australia has devised a plan for a sustainable ocean, as reported in the journal Nature.

By taking a coordinated global approach that targets specific areas for conservation and others for fishing, the researchers say more than 80% of habitats for endangered marine species could be protected, while increasing fishing yields by more than eight million metric tonnes and reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
