Building Tools for Applying Climate Science to Fisheries Management

Riley Young- Morse, The Gulf of Maine Research Institute

Abstract:

Working in partnership with the NOAA NCDC Northeast Regional Climate Center, The Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) will develop an online dashboard to make a variety of information available to fisheries management community. Priority data sources identified through user needs efforts will be reviewed from a variety of sources including observational data (buoys and satellites), climatologies, and blended projections. Additional data products such as fisheries advisories and climate outlooks will also be reviewed as potential components of the dashboard. The dynamic and web-delivered dashboard tool will integrate these data sources together and make them accessible to the fisheries management community.
