Impacts of a Changing Environment on the Dynamics of High-latitude Fish and Fisheries
When: 
Tue, 05/09/2017 to Fri, 05/12/2017
Where: 
Hotel Captain Cook, Anchorage, Alaska

This symposium examines the impacts of the environment, especially climate change and variability, on the dynamics of arctic and subarctic species of commercial, subsistence, and ecological importance.

When: 
Tue, 05/09/2017 to Fri, 05/12/2017
Where: 
Anchorage, Alaska

This symposium examines impacts of the environment, especially climate change and variability, on the dynamics of arctic and subarctic species of commercial, subsistence and ecological importance. We will focus on the effects of warming, loss of sea ice, ocean acidification and oceanographic variability on the distribution, phenology, life history, population dynamics and interactions of species and how a better understanding of these effects can inform the assessment and management of fish and shellfish populations in a changing ocean.

This workshop will focus on events that drive damage to Arctic vegetation, their causes, and consequences. With increasing frequency of
events causing damage to Arctic vegetation and an increasing appreciation of the diversity of different events that can cause browning, this workshop provides an opportunity to discuss Arctic browning drivers, subsequent consequences, prepare outputs, and develop future collaborations.

Events of interest include, but are not limited to:
