Climate change impacts and fisheries management challenges in the North Atlantic Ocean

Climate-induced changes in the world’s oceans will have implications for fisheries productivity and management. Using a model ensemble from the Fisheries and Marine Ecosystem Model Intercomparison Project (Fish-MIP), we analyzed future trajectories of climate-change impacts on marine animal biomass and associated environmental drivers across the North Atlantic Ocean and within the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) convention area under different climate-change scenarios. We then evaluated potential consequences for fisheries productivity and the associated challenges for management in a changing ocean.
