Pacific Fishery Management Council and The Nature Conservancy to host 2-day Workshop January 22-23 in Garden Grove, CA

The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) and The Nature Conservancy are cosponsoring a two-day workshop: Developing Future Scenarios for Climate Change in the California Current Ecosystem, which is open to the public.  The meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 22 and Thursday, January 23, 2020, from 8 a.m. until the completion of business on each day.

Workshop purpose

The purpose of this workshop is to create several alternative narratives (called scenarios) about what west coast fishing communities might look like in 2040. The scenarios will be developed by invited scientific experts, fishery experts, and stakeholders. The workshop is part of a broader Council effort to respond strategically to near-term climate shifts and long-term climate change, and identify strategies to increase the resiliency of west coast fisheries and fishing communities in line with an ongoing initiative of its Fishery Ecosystem Plan.
