Dynamic Ocean Management in Support of Climate-Resilient Fisheries
Dynamic ocean management is an emerging management framework that uses near real-time data to guide the spatiotemporal distribution of commercial activities to address a fundamental challenge of ocean resource use – how to balance economically viable industries with ecological sustainability.
Dynamic ocean management applications integrate the highly dynamic nature of species, ocean uses and users, and underlying oceanographic features, fueled by advances in remote sensing, animal tagging, regional ocean models, and species-distribution modelling. To date, several dynamic ocean management applications have been developed in support of ocean resource use sectors worldwide.
While several dynamic ocean management applications have been developed in support of ocean resource use worldwide, there have been fewer advances in how dynamic ocean management applications can focus specifically on promoting climate resilience in current and future fisheries management.
