Interview with Reg Watson, Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies. Closing the high seas to commercial fishing would protect fish numbers according to a new report. Watson says fishing on the high seas is currently uncontrolled. He says tuna and other large migratory species would benefit from a ban. He explains it could also help poorer countries whose fish stocks are taken from the high seas before they get there. He notes it would be difficult to enforce a ban.
