The Role of Adaptive Capacity in Enhancing Climate-Resilient Fisheries

Quick View
Project

Changing ocean conditions as a result of climate change, influence multiple components of fisheries management in the U.S. In order for fisheries to persist long-term, and provide similar ecological, social, and economic outcomes as they do now, there is a need to incorporate information that will increase the fishery’s capacity to adapt to these changing conditions.

On June 9th, 2021 the Environmental Defense Fund, University of Maine, and Lenfest Ocean Program hosted the first webinar where the Crustacean Task Force invited international experts to offer a broad overview of the rising global importance of crustacean fisheries. In this new webinar series, members of the recently formed Crustacean Management Task Force will share their work to bring awareness to and discuss the importance of international crustacean fisheries management. Throughout this webinar series, experts will explore the significance of crustacean fisheries to global food security, marine conservation, and adapting to climate change.

Nueva Investigación Para Evaluar El Riesgo De Captura Incidental De Mamíferos Marinos En Chile

Quick View
Fact Sheet

Con la finalidad de reducir la captura incidental de mamíferos marinos en Chile, administradores y científicos necesitan analizar los datos existentes, de manera de priorizar cuándo y dónde sería más útil implementar planes de regulación y monitoreo. El Lenfest Ocean Program está patrocinando a la Dra. Ellen Hines, del Estuary & Ocean Science Center, San Francisco State University, y a la Dra. Maritza Sepúlveda, Universidad de Valparaíso, para que reúnan a un equipo de expertos para trabajar junto con representantes del Gobierno de Chile, las agencias pesqueras y científicos locales, con el fin de evaluar el riesgo de captura incidental de mamíferos marinos en las pesquerías chilenas.
