Sustainable Fisheries in a Changing Climate
Presented by: The North Pacific Research Board
This session will address information and analyses relevant to sustainable fisheries in the Aleutians Islands. The Aleutians represent a distinct ecosystem in Alaska with unique physical processes and habitat, species assemblages, stock structure and interactions, and social and economic challenges. Talks are encouraged on a wide range of topics, including retrospective analyses, physical and biological models, stock structure and assessment, species distribution and interactions, habitat studies, climate impacts, and consideration of local and commercial fisheries and economic issues. The goals are to encompass a wide range of issues critical to informing and managing sustainable fisheries and aims to identify data gaps and important issues relevant to improving understanding of fisheries, local communities, and the Aleutian marine ecosystem.
