Fishery scientists and managers are working collaboratively and engaging diverse fishery stakeholders to explore jurisdictional and governance issues related to climate change through the East Coast Climate Change Scenario Planning Initiative.

The next phase of this initiative will be a 2.5-day Scenario Creation Workshop, to be held in Arlington, VA from June 21-23, 2022. Through a series of conversations and exercises, participants will create a set of scenarios that describe how climate change might affect East Coast fisheries in the next 20 years. Each scenario will describe a different way in which changing oceanographic, biological, and social/economic conditions could combine to create future challenges and opportunities for East Coast fisheries.

Approximately 75 workshop participants have been selected in advance to represent a broad range of stakeholder groups and East Coast regions. Others attending the meeting in person are invited to observe the plenary discussions and to provide comments during designated public comment opportunities. Plenary sessions only will be broadcast by webinar. Participants on the webinar will be able to provide input through a chat function and these comments will be summarized and reported out to workshop participants to the extent practicable.
