Understanding, anticipating, and predicting climate change can help fishermen, seafood processors, and fishery managers make informed choices. Readers of this important issue learn about possible effects of climate change on fisheries, such as Bering Sea crabs moving north, an increase in a salmon parasite in the Yukon River, rising temperatures in the Anchor River, and ocean acidification. Carbon footprint in the Alaska seafood industry is discussed, and helpful hints are presented on how fishermen can take a first step and use less fuel.
