For the week of 29 October 2018
Join us Thursday, November 15, 1 pm US EST/10 am US PST/6 pm UTC for a webinar on New Study Highlights Need to Tackle Fisheries and Climate Together with Steve Gaines and Chris Costello of UCSB and Merrick Burden of EDF.
The world’s oceans have the potential to be significantly more plentiful than today even with climate change, provided good management practices are put in place and warming is held to no more than 2 degrees Celsius, according to the first-of-its kind study. The study shows that compared to today, estimated future global outcomes include a $14 billion USD increase in profits, 25 billion additional servings of seafood, and 217 million more metric tons of fish in the sea - nearly a third more fish than exist today, if we can meet the imperative of the Paris Climate Accord and ensure global temperatures don’t rise beyond 2 degrees Celsius. Co-authors will discuss the findings and implications of the paper, as well as what is already being done by governments around the world to address climate change impacts on fisheries and people around the globe.
