The authors note that, on page 5210, left column, Fig. 1, the estimate of recreational anglers for China, suggested to be roughly 90 million, is an underestimate. The number of recreational anglers in China is closer to 220 million based on statistics reported in ref. 1. The authors note further, however, that the updated number does not affect the assertions or conclusions in the Opinion piece. 1. China Society of Fisheries, The development report of China’s recreational fishery. China Fishery 12, 20–30 (2018).
