And the temperature rise can be as little as 1°C, said Universiti Sains Malaysia Centre for Marine and Coastal Studies director Prof Datuk Dr Aileen Tan. Inshore fishermen will suffer first because bigger, better fish will not want to venture into shallow waters with poor conditions. Floating fish farms at sea, she said, would not compete for land resources. “But our floating fish farms today are still made of wooden planks and plastic drums. Prof Tan urged policy makers to “come down from their ivory towers” to make proactive decisions on expediting open sea aquaculture.

It is, however, probably going to get worse for the market in the coming months before the expected rebound towards the fourth quarter of this year (4Q23), according to CGS-CIMB Research. “We expect the poor market sentiment to continue for the next few months despite forward valuations falling to two standard deviations below the post-Global Financial Crisis mean,” the brokerage said. These rerating catalysts, according to CGS-CIMB Research, included a weakening of the US dollar, with a convincing break down of the US Dollar Index (DXY) below the psychological 100 mark. “Our earnings gap analysis shows that the FBM KLCI could reach 1,610 points by year-end, and 1,800 points by end-2024,” CGS-CIMB Research said. “With the right triggers in place, upside to the FBM KLCI and FBM100 could be significant, in our opinion, underscored by their multi-year low valuations,” CGS-CIMB Research said.

Hopefully, they will reconsider and accept that at 23 you need to find a job and find your adult feet.
