Sustaining Canada's Marine Biodiversity: Responding to the Challenges Posed by Climate Change, Fisheries, and Aquaculture
Source: Royal Society of Canada
From the Report In Brief:
Canada’s oceans both define and sustain this nation. They support a wide range of human activities, from recreation to fisheries to transport; on three sides of the country, they provide borders and protection. But our oceans have suffered as a result of human activity — including overfishing, aquaculture and all the things we do that drive climate change. The Arctic Ocean is being affected by reductions in the quality and quantity of sea ice caused by global warming. The Atlantic Ocean has been deeply affected by overfishing and associated changes in marine food webs. Climate change, fishing and aquaculture are affecting biodiversity on Canada’s Pacific coast. Paradoxically, the oceans suffer from a lack of human action when it comes to making the changes and reforms we need to protect our marine heritage.
