United Nations COP26 Climate Change Conference

Scheduled for October 31-Nov. 12 in Glasgow, UK

Aquatic scientists call for urgent global action to reduce emissions as the UN prepares to meet this fall in Glasgow for COP26 Climate Change Conference to avoid catastrophic impacts to fish, a vital global food source. Warming waters, sea level rise, and ocean acidification are already impacting fish and could undermine international security and peace. Reaching global net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and holding temperature rise to 1.5 degrees is vital to preserving fisheries. Protecting the integrity of healthy aquatic ecosystems and restoring degraded systems can build resilience for fish and help store carbon: https://bit.ly/3zfjntn
