Ocean Recovery | Can blue bonds finance a fish stock recovery?

The oceans cannot sustain the ongoing imbalance driven by declining wild fish stocks and rising demand. A period of restraint is needed to allow ecosystems to replenish. We outline a proposal to facilitate this with the creation of a blue bond. This would compensate the industry for its temporary loss in cashflow and provide a return for investors when fish stocks recover.
