Management implications of climate change impacts of fisheries resources

Robins, Julie. Management implications of climate change impacts of fisheries resources. Lead Agency: James Cook University.

Project Start: 15 March 2011

Project End:14 March 2014

Abstract

This application was developed in response to the widely recognised concern that climate change will result in changes to marine life and ecosystems, and hence fisheries, throughout Australia with tropical marine ecosystems in northern Australia identified as being particularly vulnerable. These changes are predicted to vary spatially depending on local climate and biophysical processes. Northern Australia is one of three major Australian regions predicted to be impacted. The project addresses the important FRDC strategic challenge of improving the management of aquatic natural resources to ensure their sustainability through research and management that accounts for the effects that climate change may have on the resources.
