TH25C:
Dynamic ocean management in support of climate-resilient fisheries

Session ID#: 92066

Session Description:
Dynamic ocean management is an emerging management framework that uses near real-time data to guide the spatiotemporal distribution of commercial activities to address a fundamental challenge of ocean resource use – how to balance economically viable industries with ecological sustainability. Dynamic ocean management applications integrate the highly dynamic nature of species, ocean uses and users, and underlying oceanographic features, fueled by advances in remote sensing, animal tagging, hand-held technology, and species-distribution modelling. To date, several dynamic ocean management applications have been developed in support of ocean resource use sectors worldwide. 

We invite the Ocean Science community to share, listen, and learn about dynamic ocean management applications that focus specifically on supporting climate-resilient and climate ready fisheries. This town hall will support a community-wide discussion of the opportunities, challenges and potential for new applications of fisheries dynamic ocean management in the context of climate change. In particular, the town hall will be a forward-thinking, community effort to explore the potential for dynamic ocean management as a tool to understand, promote and plan for climate resilience in current and future fisheries management.
