This book present an approach and identify a set of methodologies for evaluating the vulnerability of marine fishes to climate change from the Indian coast. Realizing that the impact of climate change on fishes is a reality, the document aims at understanding and assessing the vulnerability of selected commercially important marine finfish and shellfish species to the synergic effect of climate change and existing fishing pressure.
