Marine living resources encompass the full suite of marine biodiversity that provides for ecological services, such as bio-geochemical cycling of nutrients, commercial operations such as coral reef tourism, and primary production from fisheries and aquaculture. This chapter will focus on the last of these, marine living resources for food production, and infer the practical challenges that climate change will place on these resources across subsistence, artisanal and global fisheries and aquaculture operations and in different socioeconomic conditions in the Asia Pacific.
