Covering The Seas

Toolkit & Curriculum
An Issue Guide for Journalists

To assist reporters in reporting on oceans and fisheries issues, the Earth Journalism Network has produced an issue guide − Covering the Seas − with support from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. This issue guide takes an in-depth look at the state of the fisheries industry, the rapidly growing aquaculture business, the oceans’ environmental stressors, and potential solutions for a sustainable seafood trade.

Authored by veteran journalist and best-selling author of Four Fish, Paul Greenberg, Covering the Sea offers detailed overviews of the fisheries industry, sections that outline where to find sources, links to further readings, journalism tips for engaging audiences, and definitions of key terminology helpful for understanding jargon.
