Abstract

[Extract] Wealthy areas and least developed regions have healthiest fish populations, while those in the middle are suffering.

According to a study by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and other organizations, researchers discovered a surprising correlation between "middle class" communities in Eastern Africa and low fish levels. Curiously, areas with both low and high socio-economic levels had comparatively higher fish levels.
