FIS028 - Workshop on fisheries resilience / response to climate change

Contractor: University of Aberdeen

Shifting of the geographical location of fish stocks is an important topic for Scottish fisheries. It may be in response to climate change and/or other factors . Emerging zonal attachment discussions imply that a better understanding of such shifts would be helpful, as would be the development of innovative tools to improve the utility of existing and new fish distribution data.

 

FIS proposed the organisation and delivery of a Workshop to explore the current state of knowledge in these areas, and to identify developments for the future. The primary focus is on climate change and its implications for Scottish fisheries, but the workshop should also consider broader topic of innovation in the use of fish distribution data, harnessing this in the context of emerging zonal attachment discussions.
