Climate and Communities Initiative climate change scenarios

The Council developed four scenarios to explore the implications of climate change to 2040 in the California Current Ecosystem. These scenarios were used in a series of four regionally-focused workshops conducted between mid-December 2020 to early February 2021.  First, you should view this 10-minute video that will give you a high-level view of the scenario […]

Climate Change Scenario Planning Workshop December 16-17, 2020

The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) is conducting four online workshops as part of its Fishery Ecosystem Plan Climate and Communities Initiative. Each workshop will have a regional focus. The online workshops will begin at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time and continue each day until the conclusion of business for the day.  The online workshops are open to the public and will occur on the following days:

  • Southern California region: Wednesday-Thursday, December 16-17, 2020 (Agenda)
  • Northern California region: Wednesday-Thursday, January 13-14, 2021
  • Washington region: Wednesday-Thursday, January 20-21, 2021
  • Oregon region: Tuesday-Wednesday, February 2-3, 2021

Purpose of the workshops

The Council is conducting a climate change scenario planning exercise as part of its Fishery Ecosystem Plan Climate and Communities Initiative. As part of this exercise, four climate change scenarios were developed in January 2020. Based on these four scenarios, workshop participants will identify specific challenges that could be faced by West Coast fishing communities, regions, and participants. These challenges will then be used to formulate potential solutions and 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 are tentatively scheduled to be reported to the Council in March 2021. Participants will be invited to each workshop, representing a range of West Coast fishery stakeholders within each region.
