A new publication by Dr. Yong Chen and colleagues, "An evaluation of underlying mechanisms for 'fishing down marine food webs'" takes a closer look at a metric, mean trophic level, commonly used to evaluate fishery sustainability. This paper adds to a long list of publications by Dr. Chen addressing the emergent patterns and underlying processes involved in the management of marine resources. Check out Dr. Chen's current Sea Grant project, R-14-02 Evaluating Performance of Stock Assessment Models for Northern Shrimp and Atlantic Herring.
