The purpose of this article is analyzing the impacts of seawater surface temperature rise on sea mustard yields of Goheung and Wando coast in Korea, with employing a panel data regression model. Our results show that there has been a negative impacts on sea mustard yields as seawater surface temperature continuously has been rising. Especially if the upward trend in seawater surface temperature since 2005 will be maintained in future, sea mustard yield is expected to decrease by 2.6% per year.
