  • Description:
    "The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has enacted a climate science strategy as part of its proactive approach to better track, forecast, and incorporate information on changing climate conditions into living marine resource management. This strategy is being implemented through customized 5-year Regional Action Plans for climate science (RAPs). These RAPs detail regional climate science needs and specific action items to address them. The drivers and impacts of climate change vary greatly by geographic location. By creating action plans at the regional level, NMFS can tailor its response to meet specific challenges and forge critical partnerships at the local level. A first step in implementing that Pacific Islands Regional Action Plan for climate science (PIRAP) is to identify what information is needed by resource managers and what scientific research and data are available or being developed. Furthermore, regional staff will need to keep abreast of changes on these fronts. To this end, PIRAP authors decided to convene an internal Annual Collaborative Climate Science Workshop. The first workshop, detailed here, was held in September 2017. It was attended by scientists and advisors from NOAA Fisheries Pacific Islands Regional Office (PIRO) and Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC), as well as the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council (WPRFMC). The specific goal of this workshop was to identify climate-related information needs, the science products available or in development that can address these needs, and also the potential existing gaps. The workshop spanned three afternoons, with each afternoon focusing on a specific topic: protected species, coral reefs and insular/bottomfish, and pelagic/highly migratory fish. Each afternoon, participants met in small groups for facilitated discussions to identify climate-related information needs, with each group choosing three "top priority" needs. Participants then reconvened for a plenary exercise to aggregate these "top priority" needs and look for commonalities. Once an aggregated list was generated, participants identified science products that could potentially address individual information needs. Current scientific and/or management limitations were also identified. This report synthesizes and summarizes the information gathered from this workshop"--Background.
