SI24A:
Responses of Fishing Communities to Ocean Change Posters

Session ID#: 85377

Session Description:
Drastic changes to our marine ecosystems are expected under climate warming. Such changes will have profound implications for socioeconomic systems worldwide that are dependent on marine resources. To maintain resilience of fishing communities and develop adaptation strategies to climate change, improved understanding of how fishers respond to climate variability and change is paramount. Recent technological advances have increased the availability of high-resolution observations and models of ocean conditions and fisher behavior. This creates opportunities to significantly advance our understanding of how marine species and fishers interact, and how they respond to spatiotemporal variability in their environment. This session will highlight innovations and challenges in modeling responses of fishers and fishing communities to ocean variability. We welcome contributions on methodological advances in coupled biological-economic models, environmentally informed economic models of fisher behavior, climate-informed fishing community vulnerability indices, and integration of economic models and metrics into management strategy evaluations. Presentations highlighting the challenges of projecting fisher responses to climate change are also encouraged.
