Fish Carbon: Exploring Marine Vertebrate Carbon Services

3 years ago

In answer to the call by the United Nations to provide innovative solutions to address the climate change challenge and prevent global biodiversity loss, a new report has been produced on the potential of marine vertebrates to fill this void.


The report, jointly produced by GRID-Arendal, a collaborating center with UNEP, and Blue Climate Solutions, a project of The Ocean Foundation, presents eight Fish Carbon mechanisms and raises options for the future of international climate change mitigation efforts and ocean management. The report includes a preface by Sylvia Earle, Founder of Mission Blue and a former Chief Scientist of NOAA, who notes that “acknowledging the importance of marine life in climate change will not only provide much needed opportunities in climate mitigation, but will simultaneously enhance food security for coastal and island communities, while safeguarding biodiversity and marine ecosystems on a global scale, particularly in the unprotected high seas.”
