MISA Symposium “Australian Seafood Industry Response to a Carbon-Based Future" at AMSA 2009

At the Australian Marine Science Associations National Conference, seven of Australia's leading researchers met at the MISA sponsored Symposium and discussed the many challenges presented by climate change and the tools and knowledge being developed to help industry adapt. The Symposium brought together some of the available science that can assist in identifying the climate change drivers and future landscape in which seafood industries will potentially be operating. The impacts on seafood industries and strategies for responding to them in the areas of mitigation, adaptation and future opportunities were also discussed.

Speakers presentations, including pod casts.
