CANADA : New research from the University of British Columbia (UBC) suggests that achieving the Paris Agreement global warming target could protect millions of tonnes in annual worldwide fisheries catch, and billions of dollars of annual revenues for fishers, workers' income and household seafood expenditures.
The study, published in Science Advances, compared the ecosystem and economic impacts of the Paris Agreement warming scenario of 1.5 degrees Celsius to the current "business as usual" 3.5 C warming scenario.
MARSHALL ISLANDS: Fisheries authorities from the Marshall Islands and Thailand signed an important memorandum of understanding in Bangkok recognizing that the reciprocal exchange of fisheries data is an area of critical importance that requires mutual collaboration.
