    In the year 2020, the global fisheries and aquaculture production reached a record production of 214 million t which was worth USD 424 billion and provided food, livelihood and economic benefits to several million people (The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture, FAO, 2022). The seafood trade was valued at US$151 billion and nearly 60% of the volumes traded reportedly originated from developing countries. The report further mentions although the global trend of increasing number of overfished stocks is showing signs of reverse, issues of overfishing, pollution, poor fisheries management and climate change remain major challenges. Focus on certification for sustainable fishing, ecolabeling and blockchain technology enabled traceability in seafood value chains are emerging globally. The aim is to ensure resources are exploited optimally through appropriate fishing controls. Hence, science-backed, effective fisheries management policies will be of crucial importance in the coming years. In this issue of MFIS, we introduce a section “Science Corner”. It briefly communicates salient research findings of contemporary interest in the marine fisheries sector, published in peer-reviewed journals.
