Panel: How ocean life and fisheries management impact the ocean’s capacity to mitigate climate change
10 June, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm CEST
Ending overfishing, shifting to low impact fisheries and recovering marine megafauna such as whales, restores biodiversity and the ecosystems they rely on, enhancing the climate resilience of the ocean. Healthy abundant marine biomass will also result in reductions in CO2 emissions from fishing fleets.
