Plenary Session 4 | Climate-Smart Fish: Reducing Seafood’s Carbon Footprint and Navigating the Impacts of Climate Change

Introduction10:30 am to 10:35 am

The second half of the Day 2 plenary kicks off with an introduction from Best Aquaculture Practices Standards Coordinator Dan Lee. There’s no question that climate change, perhaps the defining issue of our time, is significantly impacting aquaculture and wild-capture fisheries production worldwide. This session will provide a life cycle assessment on the environmental impact of seafood production and break down seafood’s carbon footprint, with a focus on the production of aquafeed and its ingredients.

  • Moderator:  Dan Lee Global Seafood Alliance
Presentation: Environmental Footprint of Wild Fisheries10:35 am to 10:50 am

Ray Hilborn is a professor with the University of Washington’s School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences. Ray’s research aims to identify how to best manage fisheries, which involves a combination of building databases on how fisheries are managed and measures of their performance, analysis of fisheries data sets to evaluate performance and, for Pacific salmon in Alaska, extensive work in the management process and field work on the biology of the salmon. His research also focuses on the role of seafood in the global food system and the comparative environmental cost of different foods.

  • Speaker:  Ray Hilborn University of Washington
Presentation: Environmental Footprint of Aquaculture10:50 am to 11:05 am

Richard Newton is a research fellow at the University of Stirling’s Institute of Aquaculture. Richard’s research focuses on promoting circular economy initiatives in aquaculture value chains, linking environmental and socio-economic gains through comprehensive sustainability assessments. His main focus is to improve the resource efficiency of aquaculture production through various means to “eco-intensify” food production.

  • Speaker:  Richard Newton University of Stirling
Presentation: Climate Change & Mariculture11:05 am to 11:20 am

Willow Battista is a member of Environmental Defense Fund’s Climate Resilient Food Systems program, where she hopes to help transform our global food systems to be sustainable, equitable and climate-resilient through application and scaling of interventions that center and elevate the needs and perspectives of small-scale food producers and other vulnerable and marginalized food system actors.
