The video shows risk associated with fishing livelihoods in relation to climate change. It presents evidence of uncertainties and the impacts of climate change on the ocean and its resources, shellfish diseases, migration of marine resources to new areas due to warming ocean temperatures, ocean acidification, and other vulnerabilities. This prompts for urgent climate adaptation and mitigation of CO2 levels to reduce climate risks on coastal communities and their livelihoods. The resource is recommended for teaching.

ESS3: Earth and Human Activity
MS-ESS3-4 Construct an argument supported by evidence for how increases in human population and per-capita consumption of natural resources impact Earth’s systems.
HS-ESS3-1 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the availability of natural resources, occurrence of natural hazards, and changes in climate have influenced human activity.
HS-ESS3-3 Create a computational simulation to illustrate the relationships among management of natural resources, the sustainability of human populations, and biodiversity.
HS-ESS3-6 Use a computational representation to illustrate the relationships among Earth systems and how those relationships are being modified due to human activity.
LS2: Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
HS-LS2-7 Design, evaluate, and refine a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment and biodiversity.
