CEF Intern Katie Lebling Cited by Bloomberg Businessweek

Nov 22, 2013

One of CEF’s research briefs about China’s distant water fishing was featured in Bloomberg Businessweek. It was written by one of our former interns (spring 2013), Katie Lebling, now a second year student at Johns Hopkins SAIS concentrating in China studies and energy, resources, and the environment.

Katie’s research looked at the drivers and environmental impacts of China’s distant water fishing fleet. “The most prominent problem with China’s massive distant-water fishing fleet is that a significant portion of its catch is illegal, unreported, or unregulated,” Katie wrote, “which means it’s impossible to ensure sustainable fishing practices.”
