The Ocean Protection Council and Ocean Science Trust are pleased to announce the release of a new product: Readying California Fisheries for Climate Change. The report is available here, and the in-brief is available here.

The report identifies four climate change scenarios for the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem and seven potential management strategies to adapt to climate change impacts. The report was produced by a working group of the Ocean Protection Council Science Advisory Team (OPC-SAT) and the California Ocean Science Trust.

This project was developed for consideration by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to help inform the state’s process to amend the Marine Life Management Act (MLMA) Master Plan. Products from this project have been submitted to CDFW for review and may be integrated, in full or in part, into a draft Master Plan Amendment. Additional information about the Master Plan amendment process, including key resources and opportunities for stakeholder engagement, is available at
