About the forum

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 organised the 2020 International Forum on the Effects of Climate Change on Fisheries and Aquaculture, kindly hosted by FAO. We showcased research results and exploitable outcomes, as well as tools and instruments for adapting to climate change.

By fostering interaction and dialogue among scientists, policy makers and industry, we provided a forum for discussing the challenges that the fisheries and aquaculture industries may face in the future. The forum addressed possible solutions and remaining knowledge gaps. #ClimeFish
