According to the article “Future fisheries can expect $10 billion revenue loss due to climate change” climate change has an influence on many high points. Global fisheries stand to lose approximately $10 billion of their annual revenue by 2050 if climate change continues unchecked, and countries that are most dependent on fisheries for food will be the hardest hit, finds new UBC research. A vast percentage of the globe is consuming fish everyday. Once again, if we will not control our consumption, with the help of the climate change, there are major chances more species will be instinct. As provided from UBC research, “climate change impacts such as rising temperatures and changes in ocean salinity, acidity and oxygen levels are expected to result in decreased catches.” Additionally, this will influence fish farming, as a result of climate change.

 

 

In my opinion, not only there will be damage in the ecosystem and the food chain, but this phenomenon will affect the economy of all countries at once. Moreover, it may all end up with a crisis that people from the 21st century are not ready for.
