    Current Sponsored Projects

    • Integrated Vulnerability Assessment for West Coast Fishing Communities
      This project will address 2 research questions: 1. Given climate change, what is the vulnerability of fishing communities and ecosystems along the US Pacific Coast under status quo management? 2 What management strategies would most effectively reduce vulnerability and perceived risk to both fishing communities and ecosystem structure and function?
