Speech: Adaptation to climate change for aquaculture producers

Climate change has measureable impacts on fisheries and aquaculture production, both in terms of increased severe weather episodes and overall global warming. Aquaculture is vulnerable to severe weather episodes such as storms and floods through damage to infrastructure, as well as economic losses from escaped stock. The general rise in global temperature additionally affects the productivity of commercial species and raises the susceptibility of fish stocks to disease. Adaptation issues are already challenging Mediterranean and European aquaculture producers, depending on their individual circumstances. However, there is a role for FAO and Governments in providing guidance to aquaculture producers through adaptation strategies that are science-based and region specific.
