Daniel Pauly is a marine scientist most noted for studying human impacts on fisheries around the globe. He is responsible for uncovering the misreporting of yearly fish catches during the early 2000s, which led people to believe that fishing companies were still catching more and more fish from year to year. However, the global fish catch had actually been decreasing since the late 1980s. His study came as a revelation for fisheries scientists and conservation ecologists around the world.
