This meeting will provide a global perspective on climate change impacts for aquaculture and start to look at adaptation responses.

Climate change is an important strategic challenge for fisheries and aquaculture. Join us at our next Aquaculture Common Issues Group (ACIG) bite-size meeting 'Climate change impacts for aquaculture'; the first in a series of bite-size meetings, which will look at the climate change impacts for aquaculture.

We will cover the mitigation measures and adaptation responses that could be adopted; how we can positively link aquaculture growth to climate change mitigation measures; and programmes and projects on the ground.

Seafood Issues Groups

The ACIG is one of a number of Seafish-facilitated discussion forums which focus on the integrity of the seafood supply chain. These groups provide a discussion platform for some of the most important issues facing the seafood industry, particularly in relation to the responsible sourcing of seafood. They are an opportunity for all those involved in the seafood supply chain to reach a consensus on common issues.
