Special Topic Report Cards
In addition to our 'full' report cards, which look at over 30 topics, MCCIP periodically produces 'special topic' reports which focus on a few key topics in more detail.
The 2015 Marine Biodiversity Legislation Report Card focuses on how climate change could affect the implementation of marine biodiversity legislation – and in particular legislation used to establish marine protected areas.
The 2012 MCCIP Fish, Fisheries and Aquaculture Report Card focuses on how climate change is affecting the fish and shellfish we find in our seas, providing opportunities and threats, and what the social and economic consequences could be.
The 2009 MCCIP Ecosystem Linkages Report Card looked at five key issues (CO2 and ocean acidification, Arctic sea-ice loss, seabirds and food webs, non-native species, and coastal economies) to show how the interconnected nature of the marine ecosystem magnifies the many discrete impacts of climate change, documented in the MCCIP annual report cards.
