By 2020, we’ll have produced more than enough fish for a fifth of the world population, according to a new report from the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
The report, titled “Ocean Health: Lessons Learned and Future Prospects”, estimates that by 2050, the world will produce more than 1.5 billion tonnes of fish.
The findings are based on data from the FAO’s oceans, fisheries and fisheries science division, the first of its kind.
Its goal is to put a new focus on ocean health as a way to better inform food security.
The FAO has also put out a call for global governments to set up marine fisheries projects in an attempt to address climate change.
But the focus has been shifting from the oceans to the seas.
The US has the highest fish consumption of any country, and it has made big strides in the past decade.
But the US is also one of the countries least protected in terms of its fish stocks.
According to the FAOO, the US has lost some 2,500 sq km of its sea floor to sea-level rise over the past century, and the number of fish stocks has been decreasing.
This is in part because of pollution from farms, which have largely taken the lead in mitigating global warming, and because of the rapid growth of fish farms in the US.
The report says it is important to look at what is happening in other regions of the globe to understand what could happen to the ocean as a result of climate change.
“We’ve got a huge fish resource and it’s going to be in trouble if we don’t take advantage of it,” says Professor Andrew Brown of the University of Tasmania.
Australia has the world second largest fish population, behind the US, and its fish production is expected to reach 7.5 million tonnes by 2020.
But Australia is already facing some of the biggest changes in its fisheries over the next decade.
The country has seen an unprecedented rise in fish populations, and a rapid increase in fish stocks, says Professor Brown.
Australia is already experiencing its most severe effects, with its ocean fish stocks shrinking by an estimated 30 per cent by 2050.
In the past few years, the collapse of global markets for Australian fish, including on the US East Coast, has caused an economic collapse in some parts of the country, which has been a major driver of the increase in the number and type of fish that are being caught.
Professor Brown says that the fish stocks in Australia, particularly those in the south-east, are still a lot better than they were 20 years ago.
“In the 1950s we were in a position where we had huge numbers of fish in the rivers and lakes of the south east of the state,” he says.
“The problem with fish stocks is they’re going down.
So if you have fish stocks that are declining in some places, they’re not going to continue to recover.”
What we’ve got to do is figure out what the future is going to look like and that’s a lot more difficult if you don’t have a lot of fish, but you have a large amount of fish.
“Australia has a fish stock that is currently estimated to be around 10 per cent below the average levels of the 1970s.
The impact of the Great Barrier Reef being devastated by coral bleaching in 2020 was the biggest driver of this change, says Dr Brown.
The reef, which covers about one-fifth of the Australian coastline, is at risk of collapse because of rising sea levels and rising temperatures.
The Reef Marine Conservation Society says that it has warned about coral bleaches for the past 15 years, and now has evidence of bleaching occurring in areas around Australia.
The group has warned that it expects the coral to die within the next five years.
In a recent study, researchers looked at the impacts of the bleaching on the reef.
They found that a loss of 30 per 100 tonnes of coral per year would result in the death of about 600,000 coral.
That’s equivalent to the annual mortality rate for the population of Australia.
Dr Brown says Australia’s reef system has already been impacted by bleaching and that the impacts could become more severe.”
We’ve seen coral bleached at higher rates than anywhere else in the world,” he said.”
It’s very likely that there’s going be bleaching for a number of years in Australia.
“Australia also has the largest coral bleachers in the Atlantic, and is at greater risk of losing its reef.
According, Professor Brown, there’s a very strong correlation between sea level rise and the decline in the numbers of species that live on the ocean floor.”
So if you look at the global warming that’s been happening, it’s very hard to imagine that there would be any species on the world that would survive at all,” he explained.”
They’re not even at the level of the dinosaurs.
It’s quite extraordinary that there are such species in the wild.
“Dr Brown is confident that the
