Ecosystem effects of invertebrate fisheries

This new paper synthesizes the ecosystem effects of marine invertebrates, including lobster, crabs, shrimp, cephalopods, sea urchins, bivalves, gastropods and others, across 12 marine ecosystems around the world. Over the past few decades, fisheries catches of invertebrates have rapidly increased in many countries worldwide, yet the effects of those fisheries on other species, such as commercial fish or species of conservation interest, and marine ecosystems as a whole are largely unknown, although critical for effective ecosystem-based management.
