The Ocean and Climate Change
The Fall 2017 Aquatic Academy course focused on the role the World Ocean plays in modulating Earth’s climate and how the World Ocean and its ecosystems are responding to climate change. Participants learned about the implications of those changes for the future.
In the fourth session held November 15, speakers included Mark Helvey, retired assistant regional administrator for sustainable fisheries at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. His presentation was titled, Albacore Tuna Off Alaska—You’ve Got to be Kidding!
