Come join a Vancity panel discussion featuring Liu Faculty Associate, Rashid Sumaila, to explore how climate change is depleting B.C.'s seafood supply.
 

Professor and director of UBC's Fisheries Economics Research Unit and Liu Faculty Associate, Rashid Sumaila joins a Vancity panel discussion to engage in a dialogue regarding finding of a new report on how climate change is depleting B.C's staple seafood supply.

Changes in ocean physics and chemistry brought on by climate change are already impacting key marine and coastal organisms, ecosystems, and the services they provide us, including seafood.

Ultimately, the impact of climate change on our marine ecosystem for people is through economic (e.g. employment, supply and prices of seafood), social and cultural channels.

In fact, Statistics Canada reported recently that the price of food items are increasing at an alarming rate in Canada. For instance, they reported an increase in the price of fresh and frozen fish of 38% between April 2000 and April 2015.
