Diverse pathways for climate resilience in marine fishery systems

This paper from the Climate Resilient Fisheries working group offers an actionable framework that can be applied to assess and improve climate resilience, supporting fisheries practitioners as they look to adapt their management strategies to a changing climate. 

How Can Fisheries Weather Climate Change? New Tool Offers Guidance

Millions of people rely on fisheries for income, jobs, and food. How can fishers and fishing communities plan and prepare for an uncertain future? A new tool developed by SNAPP’s Climate Resilient Fisheries working group provides a way.

Co-production of knowledge and strategies to support climate resilient fisheries

Identifying and understanding opportunities to improve and support climate resilience will become increasingly important for achieving the global Sustainable Development Goals. A decadal program we are contributing to, “Fisheries Strategies for Changing Oceans and Resilient Ecosystems by 2030,” or FishSCORE, was endorsed by the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The underlying evidence and framework for FishSCORE2030 are described in this article.

New holistic framework to assess the resilience of fisheries in a climate-changed world

This analysis “examine[d] fishery systems across (a) ecological, (b) socio-economic and (c) governance dimensions using five resilience domains: assets, flexibility, organization, learning and agency, …[finding] few studies that test resilience attributes in fisheries across all parts of the system, with most examples focusing on the ecological dimension.”
