DeSombre, who has co-authored two books on the global politics of fishery conservation, Fish and the forthcoming Saving Global Fisheries with J. Samuel Barkin, discussed global politics relating to fisheries and how corporations, through commitments to sustainable practices and purchasing, can enact policies that help protect the global supply of fish.
