Study Suggests Climate Change May Usher In A New Era Of Fishing Wars

According to a report by Huffpost, new research suggests that as the oceans heat up and entire populations of fish are forced to migrate into territories where other countries have exclusive rights, the stage is being set for an era of surging international conflict.

The study claims that unless greenhouse gas emissions decrease rapidly, 70 countries are expected to contain one or more new fishery stocks in their exclusive offshore economic zones by the end of the century.

With no international organizations possessing the authority to broker new deals to share the fish, the risk of overfishing and destructive tension between neighboring nations is incredibly high.
