  • Recent advances in understanding the effects of climate change on the
           world’s oceans
    • Authors: Hollowed A; Barange M, Garçon V, et al.
      Pages: 1215 - 1220
      Abstract: AbstractIn June 2018, >600 scientists from over 50 countries attended the Fourth International Symposium on the Effects of Climate Change on the World’s Oceans (ECCWO-4). ECCWO-4 provided a forum for scientists to share information, build understanding, and advance responses to climate impacts on oceans and the many people, businesses and communities that depend on them. Seven Key Messages emerging from the symposium and relevant information from recently published literature are summarized. Recent scientific advances are improving our ability to understand, project, and assess the consequences of different levels of 21st century climate change for ocean ecosystems and ocean dependent communities. Outcomes of the symposium highlighted the need for on-going engagement with stakeholders, communities, and managers when considering the trade-offs associated with tactical and strategic opportunities for adaptation to climate change. Science informed adaptation frameworks that engage the public in their development are needed for effective management of marine resources in a changing climate. The summary provides a brief overview of the advances in climate-ocean science emerging from the symposium and provides context for the contributed papers within the broader socio-ecological advances of the discipline.

  • Ethical considerations and unanticipated consequences associated with
           ecological forecasting for marine resources
    • Authors: Hobday A; Hartog J, Manderson J, et al.
      Pages: 1244 - 1256
      Abstract: AbstractForecasts of marine environmental and ecosystem conditions are now possible at a range of time scales, from nowcasts to forecasts over seasonal and longer time frames. Delivery of these products offers resource managers and users relevant insight into ecosystem patterns and future conditions to support decisions these stakeholders face associated with a range of objectives. The pace of progress in forecast development is so rapid that the scientific community may not be considering fully the impacts on stakeholders and their incentives. Delivery of information, particularly about future conditions and the uncertainties associated with it, involves a range of judgements, or “ethical” considerations, including treatment of forecast failure, inequity in stakeholder response options, and winners and losers in commercial markets. Here, we explore these often unanticipated considerations via a set of case studies spanning commercial fishing, recreational fishing, aquaculture, and conservation applications. We suggest that consideration of ethical issues by scientists and their research partners is needed to maintain scientific integrity and fairness to end users. Based on these case studies and our experience, we suggest a set of ten principles that might be considered by developers and users of ecological forecasts to avoid these ethical pitfalls. Overall, an interdisciplinary approach, and co-production with end users will provide insurance against many unanticipated consequences.

  • Interannual variability of Gulf Stream warm-core ring interactions with
           the outer continental shelf and potential broad scale relationships with
           longfin squid (Doryteuthis pealeii) relative abundance, 1981–2004
    • Authors: Bisagni J; Nichols O, Pettipas R, et al.
      Pages: 1257 - 1270
      Abstract: AbstractObservations of WCR centers and radii for a 24-year (1981–2004) period displayed strong inter-annual variability (IAV) of encounters between WCRs and the outer continental shelf between 75° and 65° W, and decreasing encounter area east of 65° W. Temporal mean WCR/shelf encounters showed two significant maxima, i.e., “hotspots”, along the outer shelf between 72° and 71° W (south of Long Island) and 69° and 68° W (south of Nantucket Shoals). Higher temporal mean WCR/shelf encounter areas were observed during July–December (warm) months of up to twice those for the January–June (cold) months west of 65° W in agreement with earlier work. The correlation between time series of WCR/shelf encounter area and annual number of discrete WCRs from 75° and 65° W is small and insignificant. Longfin squid (Doryteuthis pealeii) displays large IAV in relative abundance between 75° and 65° W within the US Northeast Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem. Correlations of the spatially averaged annual mean WCR/shelf encounter area with D. pealeii autumn relative abundance between 75° and 65° W from 1981 and 2004 were small and insignificant. The weak correlation showed that no relationship exists between D. pealeii relative abundance and our WCR/shelf encounter metric over the broad-scale shelf region from Cape Hatteras to Georges Bank, suggesting finer scale studies are warranted.

  • Observed and hindcasted subdecadal variability of the tropical Pacific
    • Authors: Mochizuki T; Watanabe M, Link J.
      Pages: 1271 - 1279
      Abstract: AbstractThe tropical Pacific is highly responsible for controlling the tendencies of global climate. Here, we have found a subdecadal (i.e. 3-year-running means) variation that has been distinctively observed in the 2000s over the tropical Pacific. The warm water that originated from the positive ocean-heat-content (OHC) anomaly over the western Pacific in 2000 slowly extended eastward and stayed at the central equatorial Pacific between 2002 and 2005, rather than reaching the eastern edge. At the same time, an accompanying anticyclonic surface wind anomaly was observed in the off-equatorial North Pacific. This dynamical response of the upper ocean may have contributed to the subsequent warming in the western Pacific. In the preceding decades, in contrast, the observed OHC has usually represented a periodic fluctuation in the tropical Pacific, characterized by anomalous heat input/output in the meridional direction and slow eastward adjustment in the equatorial ocean thermocline. This subdecadal variation in the 2000s is quite distinct from our decadal hindcasts with initialization in Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5. The model predominantly simulates periodic-type fluctuations in any decade, and the resultant low predictability of the subdecadal variation in the 2000s can work to modulate the predictive skills at a lead time of several years.

  • Projected biophysical conditions of the Bering Sea to 2100 under multiple
           emission scenarios
    • Authors: Hermann A; Gibson G, Cheng W, et al.
      Pages: 1280 - 1304
      Abstract: AbstractA regional biophysical model is used to relate projected large-scale changes in atmospheric and oceanic conditions from CMIP5 to the finer-scale changes in the physical and biological structure of the Bering Sea, from the present through the end of the twenty-first century. A multivariate statistical method is used to analyse the results of a small (eight-member) dynamically downscaled ensemble to characterize and quantify dominant modes of variability and covariability among a broad set of biophysical features. This characterization provides a statistical method to rapidly estimate the likely response of the regional system to a much larger (63-member) ensemble of possible future forcing conditions. Under a high-emission [Representative Concentration Pathway 8.5 (RCP8.5)] scenario, results indicate that decadally averaged Bering Sea shelf bottom temperatures may warm by as much as 5°C by 2100, with associated loss of large crustacean zooplankton on the southern shelf. Under a lower emission scenario (RCP4.5), these effects are predicted to be approximately half their calculated change under the high emission scenario.

  • Accounting for shifting distributions and changing productivity in the
           development of scientific advice for fishery management
    • Authors: Karp M; Peterson J, Lynch P, et al.
      Pages: 1305 - 1315
      Abstract: AbstractIn the United States, implementation of strong legislative mandates and investments in scientific programmes have supported sustainable fisheries management for seafood production, marine ecosystems, and maritime communities and economies. Changing climate and ocean conditions present new and growing challenges that affect the ability to manage fisheries. To better prepare for and respond to these challenges, the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service has called for increasing the production, delivery, and use of climate and environmental information to fulfil its living marine resource stewardship mandates. Addressing these challenges and more formally including climate-informed decision-making in the fisheries management process requires strengthening and adapting the current fisheries management framework. We focus on two impacts of a changing climate, shifting species distributions and changing productivity, which can have significant implications for effective fisheries management. We identify six key steps of a climate-informed science-to-management system: detecting changes, understanding mechanisms of changes, evaluating risks and priorities, conducting assessments, communicating advice, and making management decisions. For each step, we identify challenges and provide recommendations to address those challenges and increase the capacity to develop and apply climate-related science to support sustainable fisheries management in a changing world.

  • Effects of ocean acidification on the respiration and feeding of juvenile
           red and blue king crabs (Paralithodes camtschaticus and P. platypus)
    • Authors: Long W; Pruisner P, Swiney K, et al.
      Pages: 1335 - 1343
      Abstract: AbstractOcean acidification is a decrease in pH resulting from dissolution of anthropogenic CO2 in the oceans that has physiological effects on many marine organisms. Juvenile red and blue king crabs (Paralithodes camtschaticus and P. platypus) exhibit both increased mortality and decreased growth in acidified waters. In this study, we determined how ocean acidification affects oxygen consumption, feeding rates, and growth in both species. Juvenile crab were exposed to three pH levels: ambient (pH 8.1), pH 7.8, and pH 7.5 for 3 weeks. Oxygen consumption and feeding ration were determined immediately after exposure to treatment water and after 3 weeks’ exposure. Growth was calculated as a change in wet mass. Both species exhibited initially increased oxygen consumption at pH 7.5, but not after 3 weeks. Feeding rations did not vary with pH or exposure time. Red king crabs that moulted grew more in ambient water than in pH 7.5. The initial increase in oxygen consumption at pH 7.5 suggests the crab increased metabolism and expended more energy in osmo-/iono-regulation. Without an increase in feeding ration, it is likely the crab reduced energy expenditure in other areas, explaining the reduced growth and increased mortality observed in this and other studies.

  • Food habits of an endangered seabird indicate recent poor forage fish
           availability off western South Africa
    • Authors: Crawford R; Sydeman W, Thompson S, et al.
      Pages: 1344 - 1352
      Abstract: AbstractLarge recent decreases of Cape gannets Morus capensis, Cape cormorants Phalacrocorax capensis and African penguins Spheniscus demersus in South Africa resulted in their being listed as Endangered. These seabirds, endemic to the Benguela upwelling system (BUS), primarily rely on anchovy Engraulis encrasicolus and sardine Sardinops sagax for food, yet decreased during periods of abundance of these prey species. In order to investigate this dichotomy, we examined long-term dietary characteristics for gannets in the region in relation to acoustically-derived biomass of prey. Principal component (PC) analysis of diet composition indicated an alternation in the use of anchovy and sardine (PC1), as well as a marked decrease, after the early 2000s, in the availability of these preferred forage resources (PC2). PC2, which we term the Forage Availability Index, was positively related to numbers of gannets and cormorants breeding each year and to estimates of survival of adult penguins at their two largest colonies in northwest South Africa. This indicates that recent availability of anchovy and sardine was insufficient to support these bird populations. Our results emphasize the need to account not only for overall abundance but also local availability of forage resources, when applying an ecosystem approach to managing fisheries for seabirds.

  • Assessing vulnerability and adaptive capacity of the fisheries sector in
           Dominica: long-term climate change and catastrophic hurricanes
    • Authors: Pinnegar J; Engelhard G, Norris N, et al.
      Pages: 1353 - 1367
      Abstract: AbstractThe Commonwealth of Dominica is a Small Island Developing State in the eastern Caribbean, that has been subject to a wide variety of natural hazards over the past century, most recently the Category 5—Hurricane Maria on 18–19 September 2017. In Dominica fishing remains important for income generation and for local food security. While there are small-scale reef and demersal fisheries, pelagic fisheries have tended to dominate in recent years and fishers make extensive use of Fish Aggregating Devices. Climate Vulnerability Assessments (CVAs) provide a coherent framework for evaluating potential impacts over a broad range of species, and also socio-ecological systems. These methods assess the “exposure” to a stressor (climate change and/or hurricane events), the “sensitivity” to that stressor, and the “adaptive capacity” within fishing communities faced with potential threats. These three components are then combined to estimate overall “vulnerability”. In this study we make use of fisheries catch data from landing ports around Dominica, to assess how each of Dominica’s ten parishes differ in terms of climate vulnerability. We examine information on species’ temperature preferences and life-history traits as well as data on social vulnerability. We then compare our predictions with observed damage following Hurricane Maria, using the 2017 Post-disaster Needs Assessment.

  • Towards climate resiliency in fisheries management
    • Authors: Holsman K; Hazen E, Haynie A, et al.
      Pages: 1368 - 1378
      Abstract: AbstractIt is increasingly evident that climate change is having significant impacts on marine ecosystems and dependent fisheries. Yet, translating climate science into management actions and policies is an ongoing challenge. In particular, four aspects have confounded implementation of climate-resilient management: (i) regional management tools may not be well-suited for managing the same systems under climate change, (ii) individual management policies and climate research studies are often implicitly focussed on spatio-temporal scales that are rarely aligned, (iii) management approaches seldom integrate across spatio-temporal scales and are, therefore, maladapted to unidirectional change and extreme events, and (iv) challenges to modelling socio-economic implications of climate change impede projections of cumulative costs to society, disguise adaptive limits, and ultimately impact climate risk and management trade-off assessments. We suggest that addressing environmental change favours adaptive and dynamic management approaches, while addressing shifting socio-economic and political conditions favours fixed long-term measures; considering both jointly requires a combination of dynamic-adaptive-fixed approaches. We outline a framework to integrate climate-responsive tools into a unified climate-resilient management approach using nested dynamic-adaptive-fixed management portfolios that improve management effectiveness and efficiency. This approach may help reduce future conflict between marine resource extractive and conservation goals through more explicit characterization of management trade-offs and identification of social and ecological tipping points.

  • A graphic novel from the 4th International Symposium on the Effects of
           Climate Change on the World’s Oceans
    • Authors: Link J; Kohler B, Griffis R, et al.
      Pages: 1221 - 1243
      Abstract: AbstractThe world’s oceans are changing in response to a changing climate, these changes have significant consequences, there is much at risk, and action is needed now to increase the resilience of ocean ecosystems and the people that depend on them. That was the message from the 4th International Symposium “Effects of Climate Change on the World’s Oceans”, held from 4 to 8 June 2018 in Washington, DC. The symposium gathered ∼650 people from over 50 countries to discuss not only how to advance our understanding and scientific knowledge, but also how to enact solutions based on that science to address challenges facing the world’s oceans. Two perceptions were explored at the symposium: that we just do not know enough to act, and that there is nothing but bad news. The reality is that while better understanding of the causes and consequences of climate-related changes in ocean ecosystems is always useful, we already know enough to act. There are also opportunities, positive outcomes, and cause for hope in considering and communicating those actions. A professional graphic artist attended the meeting, and produced a range of amazingly insightful and often poignant cartoons as an effective means to share lessons from the conference in real time. As an entree into the special theme set, a selection of the cartoons has been assembled here, providing a narrative of the meeting and offering areas for future consideration.

  • Event scale and persistent drivers of fish and macroinvertebrate
           distributions on the Northeast US Shelf
    • Authors: Friedland K; McManus M, Morse R, et al.
      Pages: 1316 - 1334
      Abstract: AbstractThe Northeast US Continental Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem is experiencing warming at a rate exceeding that of many other large marine ecosystems and has undergone significant climate-related changes. We examined the effect of thermal events and shifting patterns of primary and secondary productivity on the distribution of fish and macroinvertebrate species during the period 1968–2016. Though subject to inter-annual change, the along-shelf centre of gravity of chlorophyll concentration lacked a trend. Similarly, zooplankton bio-volume and total abundance along-shelf distance were also found to be without trend. However, the trend in the centre of gravity of copepod taxa diverged from the trends in bio-volume and non-copepod zooplankton abundance, suggesting most of these taxa had shifted in distribution to the northeast. The centres of gravity of fish and macroinvertebrate species have trended significantly to the northeast, suggesting copepods may play a key role in the distribution of higher trophic levels. Analysis of thermal events suggest that abrupt change in temperature can actuate persistent change in the distribution of fish and macroinvertebrate species. In aggregate, these broad trophic level patterns imply that distributional changes affecting upper trophic levels were dominated by thermal mechanisms, whereas lower trophic productivity, although subject to the same thermal conditions, exhibited less of a response. We hypothesize this lack of distributional response at lower trophic levels is due to their higher rates of production and turnover, and hence reflect a capacity to better integrate seasonal thermal changes. Furthermore, distributional changes of upper trophic levels may also be significantly impacted by feeding interactions at specific life history stages, where temperature affects both predator and prey.
