This paper addresses the relationship between climate change and aquaculture sector through comparing the contribution of developed and developing countries in gas emission (CO2) and aquaculture production. As long as aquaculture industry is vital source of food and revenue for most developing countries, their livelihood presumably would be affected negatively by global warming. Examining data of FAO suggested that despite slight role of developing countries in total global gas emission, their economies in aquaculture sector are more prone to losses in contrast to developed countries that emit large portion of greenhouse gases.
