Hide / Show Abstract

Fisheries include marine capture and aquaculture; they supply the world with fish, mollusks and crustaceans. Fisheries as well as ancillary activities also provide livelihoods and income. The fishery sector contributes to development and growth in many countries, playing an important role for food security, poverty reduction, employment and trade. The effect of climate change on fish stocks will have social and economic impact on fisheries and coastal communities.
