The Climate Action Module was initiated by the Council in December 2018, and the Taskforce was formed after a solicitation for nominations in October 2019. The goal of this climate project is to evaluate the vulnerability of key species and fisheries to climate change, and to strengthen resilience in regional fisheries management. The Action Module will address the following objectives: (1) coordinate to synthesize results of various ongoing and completed climate change research projects; (2) evaluate the scope of impacts on priority species identified in initial studies; and (3) strategically re evaluate management strategies every 5-7 years; (4) include synthesis to evaluate climate-resilient management tools. Results will inform “climate ready” tactical and strategic management measures, which will help ensure a productive Bering Sea marine ecosystem and healthy fisheries for decades to come.
