The status of climate change adaptation in fisheries management: policy, legislation, and implementation

Climate change is altering marine ecosystems and fisheries worldwide, requiring climate-adaptive governance for management and conservation. This review assesses the current state of implementation of climate-change adaptation into fisheries management policies and legislation across 11 national case studies. Although the need to address climate-change adaptation in fisheries management is increasingly being recognized, formal mandates are still largely lacking. Based on our review, recommendations are provided that may help to inform and broaden the scope of management approaches and tools to accelerate the move towards climate-adaptive fisheries management.
