The purpose of this workshop is to create several alternative narratives (called scenarios) about what west coast fishing communities might look like in 2040. The scenarios will be developed by invited scientific experts, fishery experts, and stakeholders. The workshop is part of a broader Council effort to respond strategically to near-term climate shifts and long-term climate change, and identify strategies to increase the resiliency of west coast fisheries and fishing communities in line with an ongoing initiative of its Fishery Ecosystem Plan. Members of the public are asked to register in advance through the following link: https://form.jotform.com/93296415530963. This will help the organizers plan workshop activities.
