In the southeastern Hawaiian Islands, an Atlantis model that takes into account climate change is in development to support ecosystem-based fisheries management. Using a meta-analytic framework, we extracted data from over 300 papers that examined responses from tropical Pacific and Indo-Pacific organisms to changes in carbonate chemistry and temperature, and from those effect sizes, produced quantitative sensitivity estimates to inform the Hawaiian Atlantis model.
