Abstract

It has been recognized that climate change will have economic consequences, both benign and disadvantageous. This is particularly true of activities such as agriculture that are directly and critically affected by the weather. The fisheries are even more dependent than agriculture on climatic conditions. While agriculture does up to a point compensate for the shortcomings of nature (through irrigation and fertilization), the fisheries, which essentially are an advanced form of hunting, are totally dependent on what nature will or will not provide.
