Study says First Nations fisheries catch will plummet due to climate change

A new study on climate change predicts the fisheries catch of First Nations in BC could plunge nearly 50% by 2050.

The UBC study says that could cost coastal First Nations communities between $6.7 and $12-million annually.

It examined the threat of rising ocean temperatures to the food and economic security of indigenous communities along the coast.

Researchers concluded fish species — including herring and salmon — would move away from their current habitats and toward cooler waters nearer the pole at an average rate of 10 to 18 kilometres per decade.
