Prof Gretta Pecl presented the seminar 'Climate-driven species re-distribution in marine coastal systems', followed by a Q&A session on April 1, 2021.
CMS Director Prof Gretta Pecl was awarded the prestigious Distinguished Women Scholars Lecture, by the University of Victoria in Canada, to highlight and honour outstanding research achievements by women scholars. Gretta presented the lecture "Climate-driven re-distribution in marine coastal systems".
This major global report aims to accelerate climate change adaptation implementation in fisheries management throughout the world, providing information to underpin strengthening the resilience of fisheries, reducing their vulnerability to climate change, and enabling managers to respond in a timely manner to the projected changes in the dynamics of marine resources and ecosystems. Dr Beth Fulton, CMS Deputy Director, contributed to a set of ‘good practices’ for climate-adaptive fisheries management that have proven their effectiveness and can be adapted to different contexts, providing a range of options for stakeholders including the fishing industry, fishery managers, policymakers and others involved in decision-making. CMS PhD student Hannah Fogarty and CMS Director Prof Gretta Pecl authored one of the 13 case studies, chapter 15 ‘Lessons and recommendations for the climate adaptation of key Tasmanian fisheries’, which focuses on wild-caught Rock Lobster and Abalone fisheries in Tasmania.

The summit was attended by over 200 youth ages 13-25 from over 50 countries.
Dr Rachel Kelly was recognised as one of Australia’s top 5 early achievers in Social Science research in the The Australian Early Achievers Leaderboard Rising Stars. The Early Achievers Leaderboard lists the five top researchers from Australian universities and research institutions in each of the eight major discipline areas, who are less than 10 years into their career.
Dr Alistair Hobday was recognised in the The Australian Life Sciences & Earth Sciences Australia's research leaders in the field of Marine Sciences and Fisheries. Australia's research field leaders in 30 fields of Life Sciences & Earth Sciences are the researchers with the highest number of citations from papers published in the last five years in the 20 top journals in their field.
Huge congratulations to Rachel and Alistair for this big achievement!!!
