Abstract:

Climate change is a pressing concern for Alaska's coastal communities and fisheries businesses facing disruptions to the abundance and reliability of fish populations. As decision-makers in south-central Alaska began climate adaptation planning, they recognized that fishermen were often under-engaged in resilience conversations and lacked resources to integrate climate risks into business strategic planning. In response to this need, a collaborative project led by the Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve provided business resilience tools and training to strengthen a network of local fisheries businesses prepared for climate impacts. The project adapted a Fisheries Resilience Index business self-assessment for Alaska, convened a network of local fisheries stakeholders, and held a series of multi-sector fisheries business resilience workshops. This science transfer project was funded by NOAA through the National Estuarine Research Reserve System Science Collaborative to promote the use of science. It did not produce any new data.

Purpose:

Climate change impacts on Alaska coasts are occurring at a rate that is challenging the ability of resource-dependent businesses to respond and adapt. These threats include changing oceanographic conditions of circulation and temperature, ocean acidification, and harmful algal blooms, as well as changing stream temperatures, turbidity, and nutrient conditions. For south-central Alaskan communities, effective climate resilience planning supports local fisheries businesses to prepare for climate impacts and requires new tools and training focused on business self-assessment and strategic planning.
