  • Aquaculture plays a key role in shifting fishery stocks

    Regardless of how much greenhouse gas emissions can be controlled, shifting fish will be confronted (1). As long as climate change is expected, shifting fishery stocks will cause violations/infringements between countries (1). Arbitration can play a key role in alleviating infringements. It is extremely hard to manage the arbitration between infringed countries. We must assume that every country is selfish and would like to supply nutrition from fishery stocks to the people. Health aspiration on fish will also accelerate violations between countries. Aquaculture plays a large role in shifting fishery stocks. Instead of preparing ocean governance for species on the move, we should focus on aquaculture for shifting fish. We may be able to cope with climate change by the aquaculture technology for supplying nutrition from fish.
