The Seas At Risk "Climate & Oceans" conference took place in Brussels on the 5th November 2008. The speakers drew the attention of the public to the marine impacts of climate change and the mitigation challenges facing the fishing and shipping industries.

The potential impacts of climate change on the environment are serious and relatively well-known, but the specific impacts on the marine environment seem to have a lesser hold on the minds of the public and decision makers.

The Seas At Risk "Climate & Oceans" conference took place in Brussels on the 5th November 2008. The speakers drew the attention of the public to the marine impacts of climate change and the mitigation challenges facing the fishing and shipping industries.

The potential impacts of climate change on the environment are serious and relatively well-known, but the specific impacts on the marine environment seem to have a lesser hold on the minds of the public and decision makers.

The conference has drawn attention to these marine environmental impacts, including impacts on certain marine activities, considered necessary greenhouse gas reduction targets, and looked at the CO2 mitigation possibilities for two important maritime economic sectors - shipping and fisheries.
