CMS contributes to new FAO report on adaptive management of fisheries in response to climate change

Published: 12/02/2021

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.
