Incorrect text: In “Australia’s dietary guidelines and the environmental impact of food ‘from paddock to plate’” published in the 21 January 2013 issue of the Journal (Med J Aust 2013; 198: 18-19), there was an error in the third paragraph of the article. The statement “Around half of Australia’s fisheries are overfished” is incorrect. It should read “Forty per cent of Australia’s managed fish stocks have been deemed overfished”, with a reference to: Srinivasan UT, Watson R, Sumaila UR. Global fisheries losses at the exclusive economic zone level, 1950 to present. Marine Policy 2012; 36: 544-549.
