The influence of global warming on the aquatic environments is a matter of global interest.The aim of the present short review is to describe the impact of the global warming phenomenon on the financial sustainability of fisheries and aquaculture sectors, in order to counteract the negative effects. For instance, in case of aquaculture activities, the impact of global warming can be either direct through changes in water availability or indirect through increased fishmeal costs and thus, increased aquaculture feed costs. In case of the fisheries sector, the main effect of global warming is the geographical shifting of target aquatic species. It is most likely that small-scale fishers and aquaculture earthen ponds will be most impacted, due to their geographical location and economic vulnerability.The present review can act as support material for identification of adaptation measurements by governments of coastal countries fighting global warming impact.
