The global fishing fleet is under enormous pressure to rectify unsustainable fishing practices but with over 1% of global oil consumption are they doing enough on climate?
As the arctic ice shrinks, sunlight will enter the arctic ocean which was previously dark. Fish that hunt by sight are expected to enter this ecosystem in record numbers and thrive on all the pristine food, which the arctic ocean is abundant. Although in the short term, large seafood companies, like Maruha Nichiro (MN) will benefit from this influx of fish, this benefit is likely to be short-lived given the industry’s tendency to overfish and deplete fish species in the Arctic. A critical challenge for Maruha Nichiro will be to avoid mistakes of the past and learn how to harvest this new resource sustainably.
Among our best answers -yet- to address climate change in the food industry is managing marine ecosystems by restricting, if not closing, the high seas for fishing. .. wait, what?
Imagine a world where our supply of food is never threatened. This is the world that Intrexon Corporation, a leader in synthetic biology, is hoping to create.
Greenland welcomes the Mackerel and says goodbye to the shrimp. What does the warming of the world’s oceans mean for a country where fishing accounts for 91% of exports?
When the effects of a minor variation in temperature can change the dynamic of one of Peru’s top industries, it is difficult not to take a closer look at climate change.
I need the right temperature and sea level to be able to catch as many tunas as possible. Therefore, I should be ahead of the curve in Global Warming preparation, right? Think again.
