Tuesday, January 19, 2021. 12:00 PM. Webinar: Social-ecological vulnerability and climate adaptation in Northeast US fishing communities. Kathy Mills, Gulf of Maine Research Institute. Sponsored by NOAA's National Ocean Service (NOS) Science Seminar Series. More information here.
Ocean waters on the Northeast U. S. continental shelf have warmed rapidly in recent years, and climate models project this warming to continue. Associated changes in species distributions and productivity are already affecting fishing communities, as they face declines in traditionally- fished species and the appearance of emerging species in their fishing areas.
