Anthropogenic climate change is one of the greatest threats to humans and the environment. While considerable attention has been given to how climate change will impact wild fisheries and agriculture, there is a dearth of understanding about the consequences for aquaculture. Now that aquaculture accounts for over half of all seafood production and continues to be the fasting growing food sector on the planet, bridging the scientific gap of aquaculture and climate change is critical.
Cumulative change in marine finfish aquaculture potential under climate change. See our new publication in Nature Ecology & Evolution for details.
Planning and mitigation. Our research begins to address how climate change may alter the suitability and productivity of marine aquaculture in the future, and the policy and social adaptive capacity under such changes. We're also investigating connections between climate change and greater food system impacts, with an emphasis on aquaculture.
