User-friendly access to California ocean species and fisheries information
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife wants to make it quick and easy for people to find key information about marine species and fisheries management in state waters. We are helping to plot the course.
Delivering essential data and interactive maps for ocean planning
The ocean in the northeastern United States is transforming rapidly with offshore wind development, aquaculture, climate change, and more. For a decade, we have been part of the team that develops and maintains the Northeast Ocean Data Portal, a centralized source of expert-reviewed, publicly accessible data, maps, and information on the region’s ocean ecosystem, economy, and culture.
Using models to reveal potential impacts of sea level rise on tidal marshes
Sea level rise threatens to wipe out some tidal marshes, which provide vital food and shelter for fish, shellfish, and birds. We teamed up with experts to translate the latest science to facilitate accurate risk assessments and development of effective management strategies.
Building resilience to climate change
Cities and towns around the world are working to understand and mitigate the effects of climate change on their infrastructure and natural resources. We conducted a risk assessment for Maine’s Casco Bay region and communicated findings of scientific monitoring.
Visualizing the effects of an innovative and controversial fisheries management strategy
How does shifting from traditional fisheries management to the newer approach of catch shares affect fish, fishermen, and fishing businesses? We teamed up with an interdisciplinary team of economists, sociologists, ecologists, and governance experts to find out and translate the findings for fishery managers and stakeholders.
Restoring habitats to benefit salmon, shorebirds, flood control, and farmers in Washington state
Along the coast in the Pacific Northwest, the wellbeing of fish, birds, and people are closely intertwined. Diverse partner organizations are working together to help them all thrive. We crafted science-based communications tools toward achieving that goal.
