Marine Fishes and Marine Fishing Activities layers were added to the Half-Earth in the fall of 2018. Currently, only 3-4 percent of Earth’s oceans are under some form of protection. Meanwhile, fishing pressures continue to mount in seascapes around the world. The Half-Earth Map is revealing the best locations where new protections can do the most good.
