Ending overfishing constitutes a significant climate emergency action, according to a report published by Our Fish. The paper underlines that overfishing and climate change are two of the biggest stressors on ocean health, including to marine ecosystems, biodiversity and fisheries.
A new study, published on Nature Climate Change, attempts to quantify fuel inputs and GHG emissions for the global fishing fleet from 1990–2011. Emissions from the global fishing industry increased by 28% between 1990 and 2011, with little increase in production, as the average emissions per tonne grew by 21%.
Catching most types of fish produces far less carbon per kilo of protein than land-based alternatives, such as beef or lamb, according to a new study by IMAS and Canadian scientists. The study provides the first global breakdown of wild fishery emissions by country and compares the carbon impact of each nation’s fishing industry with agriculture and livestock production.
The fishermen in Malaga, who are actively involved in developing the local FLAG’s strategy, had identified two key concerns linked with artisanal fishing: high fuel consumption and low energy efficiency of their boats. To address these challenges, FLAG initiated a project to research fuel saving techniques and gas emission reductions.
