The Regional Impacts of Climate Change

Other reports in this collection Adaptation options for fisheries resources

Adaptation to existing climate variability may demonstrate ways to deal with climate change. The following adaptation options are suggested for the fisheries industry (IPCC 1996, WG II, Section 16.3.1):

To reduce the possibility of fishery disruption, strict biological monitoring should be implemented, and properly enforced fishing controls must be instituted. These strategies would help keep stock-replacement levels stable in the face of physical stress caused by climate change and other environmental phenomena while meeting the growing demand for fish and fishery products by an ever-increasing population.
