In the future, food from the sea is going to be of increasing importance to global food security. At present, decisions regarding food and biodiversity conservation are made separately. This does not facilitate integration, coordination nor common understanding. The risk is that both fields of governance miss their targets. Ways to meet food needs which are also compatible with biodiversity conservation have to be found.
