Climate change impacts are dramatically stressing our oceans, putting at risk both global ocean health and the goods and services oceans provide. Fisheries across the globe are already feeling the effects of climate change, from the southeastern Pacific anchovy fishery to the northern Atlantic mackerel fishery.

Adaptive and forward-looking management strengthens the ocean’s ability to withstand current and future climate change impacts. By anticipating future changes, we can work today to ensure that fish populations and the communities that depend on them are more resilient to climate impacts.
