The Council conducted four regionally-focused online workshops as part of its Fishery Ecosystem Plan Climate and Communities Initiative from mid-December 2020 to early February 2021. Based on four climate change scenarios developed in 2020, workshop participants identified specific challenges that could be faced by West Coast fisheries, fishing communities, fishery managers, and scientists in these regions. Participants also identified potential actions that the Council and other stakeholders could take to respond to the effects of climate change in the California Current Ecosystem. The results of these workshops will be reported to the Council in March 2021.
