A morning keynote will set the stage for an afternoon session with panellist presentations addressing how aquaculture has opportunities to adapt and potentially mitigate the effects of climate change. However, there are gaps in knowledge which need to be addressed before aquaculture is fully realized with respect to promoting global food security into the future. Following these presentations will be a workshop and brainstorming session to discuss what is currently being done to address these impacts and then, what information, technology and tools are still needed. Climate impacts will be felt at different degrees based on geographic location. Nevertheless, there will be common themes and as such it would be better, or more climate smart, to make early connections among researchers so that scientists are not duplicating effort unnecessarily.

The overarching goal will be to share knowledge and potentially build collaborations within the international aquaculture field to promote a thriving climate resilient industry.
