Strategy

Aquaculture and climate change

20 Apr 2012
Description

Projected increases in air temperatures and rainfall in the tropics are expected to improve the conditions for freshwater aquaculture. Conversely, projected increases in sea surface temperature, rainfall, sea-level, ocean acidification and the intensity of cyclones are likely to cause problems for coastal aquaculture (mariculture).

The aim of this policy brief is to:
alert Pacific Island countries and territories (PICTs) to the projected eff ects of climate change on the contributions of aquaculture to food security and livelihoods; and
identify the adaptations and policies needed to capitalise on the opportunities and reduce the threats.
