Marine sustainability in an age of changing oceans and seas

This EASAC-JRC report on "Marine sustainability in an age of changing oceans and seas" focuses on the crucial role played by oceans and seas in regulating our climate, nurturing biodiversity, and providing income and food to people around the world. At COP21, governments across the globe agreed that we must set a more aggressive limit for global warming. This limit is one essential step toward a more stable relationship between the ocean and climate. But in spite of this positive direction, marine sustainability faces many challenges, according to this new report from the European Academies' Science Advisory Council and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre.
