Bridging the past and present to manage the future
of northern fisheries and ecosystems

High-latitude marine ecosystems are undergoing rapid changes due to increasing anthropogenic carbon emissions, with potentially important impacts on living marine resources and on the people dependent on these resources. These systems, particularly the gateways to the Arctic, have undergone large changes in the past between periods of cooler and warmer conditions, as evident in the paleo-ecological record. The 2022 ESSAS Annual Meeting aims to bridge perspectives from paleo-ecology, contemporary ecology, and human-environment interactions to inform the future management of fisheries and other living marine resources. The meeting will encompass a shared session with the Oceans Past Initiative. We seek contributions to the following broad themes:

Meeting Overview: 

Monday, June 20          Session 1: Learning from the Past to inform the Future
