Talk on Fisheries and Global Warming at SFI Monday

Daniel Pauly

SFI News:

Fisheries and Global Warming are the subjects of a seminar by Daniel Pauly of the University of British Columbia at the Santa Fe Institute.

The seminar will take place at 12:15 p.m. Monday, June 24 at SFI, 1399 Hyde Park in Santa Fe.

The multiple factors contributing to the crisis which besets global marine fisheries since the mid-1990s will be presented, along with key trends illustrating manifestations of that crisis.

Fisheries scientists, economists and serious policy-makers collectively know what is required to turn these trends around and to rebuild fish stocks and the fisheries, but they will be increasingly challenged by the effects of global warming, or  “tropicalization” of the resource base, combined with the extinction of endemic species in polar seas and the decline of tropical fisheries, the latter likely with huge repercussions on the food security of tropical developing countries, Paul writes.
