    Abstract

    The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) has submitted the Country Status Report (CSR) on the impact of climate change on the coastal fisheries and aquaculture sectors in India. The report was presented during a video conference convened by the SAARC Agriculture Centre (SAC) with representatives from SAARC nations. The video conference was part of the Dhaka headquartered SAC’s initiative to assess the impact of climate change on the agriculture sectors of the SAARC member countries and come up with resilient strategies. A three-member team headed by CMFRI Director A Gopalakrishnan represented India in the conference. The team presented the report, which included details of issues and challenges developing owing to climate change in the coastal fisheries and aquaculture sectors in India. PU Zacharia, Project Coordinator of National Innovations on Climate Resilient Aquaculture (NICRA), and Grinson George, Senior Scientist, CMFRI, were the other members of the CMFRI team who prepared the CSR which exposed disruptions occurring due to climate change in areas such as marine ecosystem, fish stock, harvesting sector, aquaculture, market and trade. The present condition of fishing communities was also included in the report.
