Changing Oceans and Altered Ecosystems:
The Role of Dynamic Ocean Management
Highly migratory species are difficult to manage as they regularly move in response to ocean conditions and cross human-imposed jurisdictional boundaries. Many migratory species face multiple threats including being hit by ships and interacting with fishing gear (bycatch). Rapidly changing ocean conditions such as marine heatwaves are making existing management approaches less effective and creating new human-wildlife conflicts.
Join Elliott as he discusses how new approaches to management can conserve top predators while still allowing humans to use the ocean sustainably.
