Seagrass meadows are crucial for human food supply

Creatures linked to seagrass habitat in Indonesia’s Wakatobi National Park provide at least half of fish-based human food in the area, according to researchers from the UK. But people are catching too many juvenile fish and, together with poor seagrass habitat management, this could undermine the long-term security of this food supply.
