Climate Adaptation Toolkit for Fisheries Management

Organization Description

Climate Adaptation Toolkit for Fisheries Management

Supporting sustainable U.S. fisheries management is important for ecosystem health and human and economic well being. These fisheries (commercial, recreational, and subsistence) include both wild capture and farmed (aquaculture), and provide important contributions to the U.S. economy. Climate change is having and will continue to have cascading effects on all aspects of fisheries, including fish production, essential fish habitats, fishing-dependent communities, and resource managers. Fisheries managers may need to modify existing policies and management strategies in order to minimize or take advantage of actual and projected climatic changes and acidification impacts. This content collection provides articles, tools, and case studies related to climate change, ocean acidification, and fisheries to support management and decision making.
