For the weeks of 9 and 16 May 2016
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Join us Thursday, 2 June for a webinar on A Methodology for Assessing the Vulnerability of Fish and Invertebrates to Climate Change.
This webinar will be presented by Wendy Morrison of NOAA. To prepare for and respond to current and future changes in climate and oceans, fisheries managers and scientists need tools to identify what fishery resources may be most vulnerable in a changing climate and why. The NOAA Fisheries Fish Species Climate Vulnerability Assessment Methodology uses information on species life history characteristics, species distributions and projected future climate and ocean conditions to estimate the relative vulnerability of fish species to changes in abundance or productivity (and to some extent distribution). The results help guide additional science to better understand possible climate impacts on fish species or stocks and assist fisheries decision makers in considering how to prepare for and respond to climate-related changes.
