For this study, researchers with the Ocean 2015 Initiative examined the latest research on the impact of climate change in our oceans, and the goods and services they provide, valued at hundreds of billion of dollars per year.

The study assessed the impact of climate change on marine and coastal ecosystems, ocean chemistry, tourism, and human health. Sumaila specifically analyzed how warming will impact fisheries and the global economic gains we receive from these fisheries.

The new research points to the need to limit emissions to help reduce the impact of rising atmospheric temperatures and acidifying oceans. 

The findings are intended to inform discussions at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in December. This conference hopes to achieve a legally binding agreement on climate
