Implementing ecosystem-based fisheries management requires a comprehensive examination of fisheries ecosystem components. Determining the relative prominence among these components is warranted given the many issues facing marine ecosystems. This presentation will provide an overview of the characterization of U.S. marine fishery ecosystems by compiling a multidisciplinary view of coupled socioecological system (SES) indicators for each ecosystem. These characterizations can be applied toward understanding the interdependence of foundational human and natural properties as applied toward determining successful Living Marine Resource (LMR) management strategies, and in determining system-level thresholds. In this presentation, Tony Marshak will emphasize cross-regional comparisons among SES indicators, with specific examples from temperate, subtropical, and tropical U.S. fisheries ecosystems.
