Research to Understand Vulnerability of West Coast Fishing Communities to Climate Change

The California Current Ecosystem (CCE), which brings cold, nutrient-rich waters to the U.S. West Coast, supports a wide range of important fisheries off California, Oregon, and Washington. In recent years, climate-driven changes in the CCE – from warming temperatures to ocean acidification and toxic algal blooms – are disrupting ocean habitats and species, and by extension the social and economic fabric of fishing communities on the coast.

Harnessing Positive Species Interactions to Enhance Coastal Wetland Restoration

Coastal wetlands are among the most productive ecosystems in world, providing shoreline protection, carbon storage, pollution mitigation, and fisheries production. However, coastal wetlands are in decline due to coastal development, invasive species, overfishing, and climate change.
