Rising water temperatures as a result of climate change could threaten the country's aquaculture industry and fish production in general, a scientist based in Iloilo province on Friday. "There is a threat to aquaculture production," said Dr. Felix Ayson, the chief of the Aquaculture Department of Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC). Organisms can adapt to new temperatures but it will take time, he said, adding that the industry cannot afford to stop fish production to address the country's food needs.
