The Future Atlantic Ocean: Forecasting ecosystem functioning from microbiomes to fisheries

A side event to the All-Atlantic Conference 2021.

In cooperation with fishing communities, scientists and modellers have started to create the first generation of fish forecasting products. Already, in some areas, variables such as sea-surface temperature can be predicted five or more years in advance. When coupled with ongoing work in fisheries research and ecosystem analysis, models are being developed that can predict fish stock distribution and abundance many months in advance. Given the potentially valuable, but also controversial, nature of this scientific work, this briefing seeks to promote a discussion on the  societal and policy implications of fish forecasting in the Atlantic Ocean.

Welcome by Professor Noel Keenlyside (UiB, BCCR), Opening Remarks by Sigi Gruber (European Commission). Speakers: Professor Astrid Jarre (University of Cape Town), Professor Hugo Sarmento (Universidade Federal de São Carlos), Dr. Juliette Mignot (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement), Dr. Mark Payne (Technical University of Denmark). Followed by a panel discussion, moderated by Dr. Thulani Makhalanyane (University of Pretoria).
