Climate change is already resulting in warmer temperatures and extreme weather patterns. Continued emissions levels by maintaining ‘business as usual’ will intensify climate change and may lead to further impacts. We know that addressing climate change will need action by government, industry and wider society.
The good news is that seafood already has a lower carbon footprint than many other sources of protein. This makes it a climate smart food which can help meet the needs of a growing world population. However, the seafood industry will need to make further changes to adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
A new paper published by Cefas is helping the UK fishing industry to understand the future impacts of climate change on commercially important fish species across the UK.
This Common Language Group online bite-size meeting will look in more detail at the seafood winners and losers in a warming world, and what the science is telling us so far.
Stuart McLanaghan, Seafish.
Elena Couce, Cefas.
Erin Priddle and Katie Longo, Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
Cathy Haenlein, Royal United Services Institute (RUSI).

Seafood Issues Groups
The CLG 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.
