[A-OS18] [EJ] Beyond physics-to-fish: Integrative impacts of climate change on living marine resources
Tue. May 23, 2017 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall HALL7)
This session will take a "physics-to-fish" approach to identify the impacts of climate variability and anthropogenic climate change on marine organisms with a particular focus on living marine resources (i.e., commercially targeted fish and invertebrates and protected species, such as marine mammals, seabirds, and sea turtles). Talks will investigate bottom-up oceanic forcing, connecting physical atmospheric and oceanographic processes to lower trophic levels, which in turn influence the abundance, biogeography, phenology, migration patterns, growth rates, reproduction, and physiology of higher trophic level marine organisms. Presentations can address this topic with observational, experimental, or model-based approaches. We especially encourage submission of presentations that include an "integrative" element. Presentations can integrate across: multiple life history stages to address cumulative population level effects of climate; multiple species to identify key ecological characteristics that influence species responses to climate change; multiple modes of climate variability in order to attribute the source of observed changes in living marine resources; multiple regions to pinpoint hot spots of climate change impacts; multiple stressors to gauge how individual impacts may be amplified or counteracted by other ecosystem stressors, or; multiple scientific disciplines to better develop climate change solutions that can be implemented by resource managers and other stakeholders. Lastly, special consideration will be given to presentations that can directly inform and improve marine policy.
