More than half of the world’s fish stocks have been wiped out by climate change and a further 1.5m fish species are at risk of extinction, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
The global fishing fleet is now estimated to be about one-third of what it was in 2000, the report said.
Key points: The report estimates that 1.1m species of fish are at greater risk from climate change, with more than half still not listed as endangered.
About 80 per cent of the global population of fish is estimated to have disappeared between 1970 and 2020The IUCN said the numbers of fish being caught, caught by and caught by humans were the largest single source of CO2 emissions worldwide.
More than 600 species of seafood are now listed as threatened with extinction, with 1.2m species at risk, according the IUCNC.
The IUCNT has said that if no action was taken, the population of these fish could be as low as 1.3 million in the next 100 years.
The report also found that climate change is driving a decline in fish stocks globally.
Fish stocks have plummeted by more than 70 per cent since the mid-1990s, according its latest assessment.
“The global fishing industry is at a critical point in time.
Fish have already been lost in the global fishery and are likely to lose even more in the coming decades,” said Paul Hulse, the chief executive of the IPC.
“It is urgent that all nations take action now to reduce their emissions of CO 2 and protect these critical ecosystems.”
Key points : The report has identified many areas in which fish stocks could be restored and the global fishing community has a range of approaches to manage fish stocks and climate change.
The fish industry can play a role in the recovery of many of these stocks, and is well placed to do so.
The Global Fishwatch report highlights key areas for action.
It highlights a range in the management of fish stocks, from the most basic to the most complex, and highlights the key challenges facing fishers and fisheries workers in tackling climate change in the fisheries industry.
“There is now a range available for managing fisheries and fisheries resources to tackle climate change,” the report says.
“This includes managing the impacts of climate change on fishing and managing the risks to fish stocks.”
It also highlights that the global fisheries industry needs to take steps to improve resilience and manage uncertainty in fisheries, particularly in the event of climate impacts.
The global fisheries sector has invested billions of dollars in improving fishery management systems.
The catch-and-release system, which is used in the world-wide fishing industry, was developed to manage fisheries stocks and to protect fish and ecosystems.
It includes measures such as monitoring, environmental monitoring, fishing equipment monitoring and monitoring of fishing practices and stocks.
The system also allows fishers to set quotas for fish, or to release stocks where stocks are too depleted to sustain population growth.
This has been a key driver of global catch- and release fisheries stocks.
But the catch-free system is now being tested as a more effective means of managing fisheries stocks as more fish species become threatened by climate disruption.
The fishery sector has also made efforts to reduce CO2 in the oceans and the fish industry is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from its fishing activities.
In 2016, the International Fishery Management Association, an international organisation that supports fisheries management, launched the Global FishWatch Initiative.
It will provide an expert review of fishing industry strategies and plans to tackle CO2 and other climate change impacts.
“We need to take action to address the challenges facing the fishing industry and its stakeholders in addressing the impacts on fish stocks,” said Ms Hulse.
However, we need action now, so that we can preserve our global fisheries and support their recovery in the future.”
