Session 7. Strategies for ecosystem management in a changing climate

Manuel Barange (UK)
Anne B. Hollowed (USA)
Suam Kim (Korea)

Plenary Speaker:
Scott Large on behalf of Jason S. Link (NOAA-Fisheries, USA)

This session will explore the complex issue of implementing an ecosystem approach to management under changing climate conditions. Climate change is expected to impact the distribution and abundance of fish and shellfish through direct and indirect pathways. The temporal signature of these changes will be dominated by long term trends and thus may necessitate new approaches to setting biological reference points for single species management. Projection models indicate that climate change will affect the distribution and/or abundance of particular species, which in-turn would alter the structure and function of the system. New approaches may be needed to address the complex issues of defining biological and ecosystem reference points under uncertain future states of nature. For fished stocks that are projected to decline under changing climate conditions, it is unclear when or if additional precautionary approaches would sustain the populations or the fishery that depends on them. This session seeks papers that: 1) explore implementations of an ecosystem approach to management under projected climate change, 2) propose techniques that identify how uncertainty in climate and biological responses can be incorporated into biological or ecosystem reference points, 3) evaluate the performance of proposed strategies under changing climate, and 4) define the precautionary approach under changing climate.
