Table 1 Current (base case) and year 2100 estimates of ΣMDHA according to the IPCC RCP scenarios. Values listed are median ∑MDHA from marine and freshwater capture fisheries and aquaculture (median × 103 tonnes in bold, with 90% confidence interval). Note that subtotals do not equal the overall total, as each output was analyzed independently
