Global climate change becomes the foremost issue concerning the earth future. The process of global warming shows no signs of abating and is expected to bring about long-term changes in weather conditions. These changes will have serious impacts on the four dimensions of food security: food availability, food accessibility, food utilization and food system stability. Effects are already being felt in global food markets, and are likely to be particularly significant in specific rural locations where crops fail and yields decline.
Many questions on how to formulate some policies the research based development on marine and fisheries sector to maintain sustainability fisheries are addressed to researchers and policy makers. From this seminar, it is expected to produce some possible answers and problem solving decision regarding the global problem on the development of fisheries and fishermen
wealth. Let’s save the earth and fisheries through a responsible and sustainable research.
