This activity report includes conclusions and recommendations of the second international workshop, which was held in November 2012 and brought together 55 experts from 19 countries along with representatives of international organizations. The workshop explored the level of risk, and the resilience or vulnerability of defined regions of the world ocean in terms of fishery and aquaculture species and economic impacts, and social adaptation. The workshop sought to address common themes or specific priorities for action by communities, resource managers and policymakers.
A series of international workshops on the economics of ocean acidification was launched in 2010 by Scientific Centre of Monaco (CSM) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The idea behind it was to provide the platform for a multidisciplinary dialogue between natural scientists and economists. This workshop identified fisheries and aquaculture among the main economic sectors impacted by ocean acidification.
