    Fisheries and Aquaculture in our Changing Climate [Brochure] 2009
    Also available in:

    Coastal communities, fishers, and fish farmers are already profoundly affected by climate change. Rising sea levels, acid oceans, droughts and floods are among the impacts of climate change. Oceans provide the very air, the oxygen we breathe, and climate change is altering the ancient balance between oceans and the atmosphere. This policy brief highlights the key issues to ensure that decision makers and climate change negotiators are aware of and understand the changes and their impacts, and the opportunities for adaptation and mitigation in aquatic ecosystems, fisheries and aquaculture at the UNFCCC COP-15 in Copenhagen in December 2009 and in national and local responses to climate change. The brief also reflects the consensus of 19 concerned international and regional agencies.

    Climate change implications for fisheries and aquaculture: overview of current scientific knowledge 2009
    Also available in:

    This document provides an overview of the current scientific knowledge available on climate change implications for fisheries and aquaculture. It contains three technical papers that were presented and discussed during the Expert Workshop on “Climate Change Implications for Fisheries and Aquaculture” (Rome, 7–9 April 2008). A summary of the workshop outcomes as well as key messages on impacts of climate change on aquatic ecosystems and on fisheries- and aquaculture-based livelihoods ar e provided in the introduction. The first paper addresses climate variability and change and their physical and ecological consequences on marine and freshwater environments. The second paper tackles the consequences of climate changes impacts on fishers and their communities and reviews possible adaptation and mitigation measures that could be implemented. Finally, the third paper addresses specifically the impacts of climate change on aquaculture and reviews possible adaptation and mitigation measures that could be implemented.
