Fisheries Strategies for Changing Oceans and Resilient Ecosystems by 2030
This program will bring together scientists, fishers, resource managers, community practitioners, and policymakers to move marine fisheries towards climate resilience. We will develop frameworks to assess vulnerabilities, determine actionable adaptation options, and identify resilience-enhancing measures for ecological, social, cultural, economic, and governance dimensions of fishery systems in changing oceans. We will draw upon evidence and experiences in fishery systems around the globe that will be needed to develop, apply, and improve these frameworks. Ultimately FishSCORE’s contributions will help identify strategies that work in the real world to achieve healthy ecosystems, resilient fishery systems, and equitable benefits in the context of changing oceans.
