It’s hard to not feel guilty about eating seafood these days as reports of overfishing and collapsed fisheries abound. Led by a group of Young Global Leaders of the World Economic Forum, however, an exciting solution is beginning to emerge, the brainchild of marine ecologist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Enric Sala. Sala spoke to Terry Waghorn from Forbes and Ensia about “fish banks” as a tool for protecting marine biodiversity while providing food and jobs from the ocean.

A version of this interview originally appeared on the website of Ensia’s predecessor, Momentum.
