Forecasting the volume of resources available to be caught by 2050
Currently, the global catch of aquatic bioresources has stabilized at 95 mn tonnes a year. Will that figure drop or increase in 2050? How true are long-term forecasts? The role and possibilities of fishery science in the process.
Scenarios: possible development of the situation with the fishery resource base dropping or rising
Can we influence illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing by changing TAC figures? What social and economic consequences stem from regulating TAC? Could capping the catch of aquatic bioresources trigger an upsurge in piracy and trade wars?
International fishery organizations by 2050 (development dynamics, goals, objectives)
The process of establishing regional organizations for managing open-sea World Ocean fishing is virtually complete; the UN has launched the process of creating a universal mechanism for managing the catch of aquatic bioresources of the World Ocean.
The world’s leading scientists will discuss possible directions in the development of international maritime and fisheries law prior to 2050. Will competition for access to aquatic bioresources increase or will international fisheries be capable of setting up effective long-term sustainable management of fishing activities?
Topics for discussion:
- Global forecast of the state of aquatic bioresources by 2050: is it possible?
- Assessing the key long-term risks for global fishing activities and aquaculture: climate change and human impact
- The role of international cooperation in long-term regulation and the conservation of bioresources
- Business’s interest in long-term partnership with science for preserving aquatic bioresources as an efficient source of food and forage products for future generations.
