Climate change has had an impact on fisheries and coastal communities throughout history, due to environmentally driven fish stock fluctuations, changes in species distribution, extreme events and changes in sea-level. The survival of coastal communities depended on being able to cope with such changes, by altering their fishing practices or switching to alternative livelihoods. In many cases communities did not survive or suffered economic hardship and emigration. Although some adaptability can be expected in response to anthropogenic climate change, the new situation is different in a number of ways. The expected rate of change is rapid and in one direction; most fisheries are already under pressure from overfishing, habitat degradation and other sea and coastal uses; new pressures arise from sea-level rise and ocean acidification. This session will focus on forecasts of expected impacts of climate change on the coastal fish stocks and the communities that depend on them as well as strategies for survival under a changing climate.
