Common Challenges and Opportunities for Global Fisheries: An International Perspective, Part 1*

Monday, August 18, 2014: 1:30 PM-5:20 PM
2103 (Centre des congrès de Québec // Québec City Convention Centre)
Marine fisheries are a huge global industry with many challenges. At present, we are approaching our production limits in sustainable fisheries; climate change will continue to change the world’s oceans and the fisheries that rely on them; human populations and demands for food continue to increase; and the cost of fossil fuel  continues to rise and affect the economics of industrial fishing. This symposium will feature a speaker from the fishing, research, management, and fish processing sectors representing major fisheries nations. Discussions will address the major challenges and social and scientific needs perceived by each sector; opportunities for future fisheries will also be discussed.  The goal is to identify a set of common guidelines or key issues of concern for managing global fisheries.
