OC004:
Effective tools for local and regional stakeholders to address coastal acidification challenges


Session ID#: 27409

Session Description:
Ocean and coastal acidification will affect different industries and stakeholders depending on the regional drivers of acidification (e.g., upwelling, freshwater inputs, nutrient loading) and the regional importance of sensitive marine resources and practices such as fisheries, aquaculture and habitat conservation. This session solicits presentations describing information products to serve the needs of industry, management, and conservation communities. These may include conceptual models for stakeholder education, output from vulnerability assessments, mitigation strategies to lessen effects of OA, monitoring assistance to hatcheries, bioeconomic forecasting, or other products developed through direct interaction with stakeholder groups. Our aim is to highlight examples of how to use scientific understanding to create useable products. We especially encourage descriptions of how stakeholder input helped to shape the end products and how stakeholders are using the information provided.
