Against overfishing: Protect large spawners and assess stocks correctly
Study: The replenishment potential of exploited fish stocks is systematically overestimated To avoid overfishing the status and reproductive capacity of fish stocks are regularly determined through stock assessments. The fecundity of female fish is here an important factor. Unfortunately, many calculations contain a systematic error as the reproductive capacity of large fish is underestimated.

For a greener carbon footprint
For a greener carbon footprint
The Federal Statistics Office has made an exact tally: in 2019, 83.7 million lithium-ion batteries were sold in Germany. The carbon footprint they create is currently significant, especially in their production. Because batteries play a key role in the successful implementation of the energy transformation - and in the associated increase in electromobility - the aim is for them to become "greener? in future.
