The impacts of climate change to ocean health and food security are no longer a risk, but a reality we need to address. Our panelists will explore the multifaceted challenges and opportunities that lie at the intersection of climate change, blue foods sustainability, and the role of seafood businesses.

Key discussion points will include:

• Understanding Blue Foods: An overview of the importance of blue foods in global food systems, their unique vulnerabilities to climate change, and the potential of these aquatic resources to contribute to a climate-resilient future.

• Climate Change and Blue Foods: A deep dive into the specific impacts of climate change on blue food ecosystems, including rising sea temperatures, financial impacts, and extreme weather events.

• Financial Implications: An exploration of the economic consequences of climate change on blue food industries. This includes potential financial losses due to decreased productivity, increased costs of adaptation, and the socio-economic impacts on communities dependent on these resources.

• Climate Resiliency Strategies: Discussion on innovative strategies for enhancing the climate resiliency of blue food systems. This includes sustainable fishing practices, aquaculture innovations, ecosystem-based management approaches, and the role of technology in promoting resilience.
