“Climate change, global warming in particular, has placed the future of all living creatures at stake,” Fisheries Director General Muhammad Ayub said at a seminar on Effects of Climate Change on Fish Biodiversity held at the Fisheries Biodiversity Hatchery at Chashma Barrage on Tuesday.
He said climate change was the biggest challenge people all over the globe were evidently faced with. The Fisheries Department head stressed the need to study the effects of global warming on breeding of aquaculture. Aquaculture experts and academics all over the country should collect practicable suggestions to deal with the challenge and present them, he said. “We must be responsible citizens and work together to change things around,” he said. “The future of our coming generations depends on it.”
Several experts spoke about climate change and its impact on fish biodiversity. Many of them tabled suggestions on how to minimise the adverse effects of global warming on fish.
