Climate Change: Ecosystem Considerations

This website is a resource for fishing industry stakeholders, researchers, and the interested public, providing an introduction to climate change science, a summary of pertinent research, and climate change impacts on the fishing industry.

The site—from NOAA's Northeast Fisheries Science Center—serves as a summary of peer-reviewed, published research focused on historical and projected climate impacts on the ecosystem and living marine resources of the U.S. Northeast Continental Shelf. It also includes a primer on climate change science, global climate models, and the assessments conducted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The site was designed to be an outreach tool for the public, but it can also be used by scientists, fishing industry stakeholders, and policy makers.
