Sustainable Fisheries & Aquaculture: A Whole Planet Approach

February, 2021

3 billion people around the world depend on fish as a vital source of nutrition and up to 10% of the global population, particularly in developing countries and coastal communities, relies on fisheries for their livelihood. While fisheries and aquaculture produce lower greenhouse gas emissions than other agricultural food systems, there are risks and challenges from poor management, climate change, and illegal exploitation. Join us to hear from Caroline Tippett, Senior Director, Seafood Markets; Vishwanie Maharaj, Director, Tunas and International Fisheries; and Aaron McNevin, Global Network Lead, Aquaculture, about the work WWF is doing to reverse marine species and ecosystem declines, buffer the effects of climate change, and provide financial and food security for local communities.
