This project aimed to assess the vulnerability and adaptation of fisheries and aquaculture sectors to climate change in the Indian Ocean region and involved researchers from Australia, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Maldives, Mozambique, Seychelles, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Tanzania.

The Indian Ocean region is highly exposed to the impacts of climate change, such as rising sea surface temperature, ocean acidification, sea level rise, changes in precipitation and storm patterns, and shifts in marine species distribution and productivity. The fisheries and aquaculture sectors are highly dependent on the health and productivity of marine and coastal ecosystems. They are also influenced by the socio-economic and governance conditions of countries and communities.

The project has contributed to the knowledge and capacity of the researchers and stakeholders in the Indian Ocean region. It has provided a basis for further research and action on climate change adaptation in fisheries and aquaculture.
