Climate change here now, fishermen agree

August 29, 2013

Fishermen around the Gulf of Maine agree that climate change is not a future threat, it’s affecting their fisheries now. This edition of the Gulf of Maine Times has a story about fishermen, scientists, environmentalists and managers discussing the changes they see now as ocean temperatures warm.

The Royal Bank of Canada, through its RBC Blue Water Project, has promised to contribute $50 million over 10 years to protect fresh water around the world. In this edition, we highlight just a few of the projects either aided or fully-funded around the Gulf of Maine by this project.
