Between 1950 and 2010, the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) underestimated the total number of fish caught in the world's oceans by over half, according to new book Global Atlas of Marine Fisheries, the product of ten years of research. Instead of total fish catches hitting a peak of 86 million tons in 1996, the number was actually 130 million tons. That means the already serious decline in fish stocks since the mid 1990s was even steeper than scientists thought.
