Climate change poses a threat to ocean and freshwater resources. Increased temperatures risk shifting the distribution of fish stocks and adversely affecting aquaculture production. These changes could have serious consequences for food security.
The ClimeFish project is organising the 2020 International Forum on the Effects of Climate Change on Fisheries and Aquaculture, kindly hosted by FAO. We will showcase ClimeFish research outputs, as well as tools and instruments for adapting to climate change.
By fostering interaction and dialogue among scientists, policy makers and industry, we will provide a forum for discussing the challenges that fisheries and aquaculture face today, and will face in the future. The forum will address possible solutions and remaining knowledge gaps.
