"Global Trade and Welfare Implications of Climate-Induced Wild Catch Fishery Decline"
by Burkhardt, Jesse, Amanda M. Countryman, Dale Manning, Duy Nong and Travis Warziniack

Wild catch fisheries and aquaculture are important global economic sectors. Fifty-seven million people are involved in fishing industries worldwide, while fish provide 6.7% of all human protein consumption. Yet, fish populations and the fishing sector face three key threats. First, almost two-thirds of the world’s fisheries are fished at biologically unsustainable levels. Second, the effects of climate change on ocean ecosystems, and thus regional fish populations, are uncertain. Finally, global per capita fish consumption is steadily increasing, adding additional pressure to an already strained resource. These threats led to a precipitous decline in fish populations with early evidence of a sixth mass extinction (Payne et al., 2016). This paper investigates the international trade and welfare impacts of climate-induced wild catch fishery decline.
