The impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems and fish populations are being increasingly recognized and are expected to increase as warming trends, extreme warm events, and ocean acidification become more pronounced. While these impacts have been documented and compared across regions, much less attention has been devoted to understanding how fisheries—particularly the fishing industry and the management and governance systems that regulate harvesting—are responding to these changes. By comparing how responses differ between ecosystems and governance regimes, we will develop a typology of approaches that can be employed at multiple decision-making scales to enhance resilience to climate variability and change.

This workshop will bring together scientists and practitioners from different regions of the world to document and compare how marine fisheries are responding to the impacts of climate change. We are especially interested in comparing the response of fisheries in the northwest Atlantic, Norwegian-Barents Sea, Gulf of Alaska, and Australia, four regions that have experienced rapid environmental changes but have very different fisheries and fishery management systems. Within each region, we will outline the major climate impacts on fisheries and the responses to these impacts at different scales (e.g., temporal, spatial, and social/institutional). The rationale behind selection of specific approaches and tools for climate adaptation will be discussed in the context of constraints and opportunities that exist within ecological, social, and governance systems of different regions. Specific objectives of the workshop include:

  1. identifying climate adaptation measures that are being pursued in marine fisheries,
  2. assessing conditions that constrain or facilitate adaptive actions, and
  3. comparing how adaptation responses and options vary across ecosystems, fisheries, and management regimes.

The workshop will include a combination of invited talks that provide an overview of climate impacts, adaptation measures, and the fisheries context in each region and breakout groups to explore similarities and differences among regions in adaptation approaches for fisheries. A working group session will draft a framework for comparative analysis of climate adaptation initiatives in marine fisheries across regions and populate elements of this framework with information from each region.These results will be published in a journal manuscript.
