Real-time shifts in marine ecosystems and species demand “climate-ready” fisheries. This new research will inform fisheries management.
|Climate Change Likely to Reshape West Coast Fisheries by Sending Fish Farther Offshore
August 18, 2023
Research by multiple scientists from the California Current IEA team found that vessels may have to travel farther and fish deeper to keep catching fish in the future as a result of climate change.
|Coral reefs benefit from reduced land-sea impacts under ocean warming
August 09, 2023
Local human impacts combine with global ocean warming to threaten coral reef persistence. New research finds that simultaneously reducing land- and sea-based human impacts supports coral reef persistence in our changing climate.
