Workshop on climate change impacts on salmon scheduled for March

Experts will review predicted climate changes over the range of wild Atlantic salmon.
Published: 31 January 2017

​​​The Workshop on Potential Impacts of Climate Change on Atlantic Salmon Stock Dynamics (WKCCISAL) will take place 27–28 March at ICES Secretariat in Copenhagen. The main aim is to provide the scientific basis to respond to a request for advice from the North Atlantic Salmon Conservation Organization (NASCO).  

With changing climatic and oceanic conditions, there is potential for effects to be reflected in salmon feeding, growth, and migratory routes. WKCCISAL aims to review predicted climatic changes over the distributional range of wild Atlantic salmon as well as literature and research on the biological and environmental drivers that affect stock dynamics.  

The workshop will also identify and describe potential impacts upon characteristics that may affect stock productivity, different habitats, interactions between salmon and other species, migration, and interpopulation genetic diversity.   

The group is seeking participation from experts working on all aspects of north Atlantic salmon, marine pelagic fish species and stock dynamics, parasitology, pelagic food webs, salmonid genetics, and those who work on the potential effects of climate change on the oceanic environment. Participation from those undertaking similar work on Pacific salmon species is also encouraged.     

If you are interested in participating, contact David Miller or Dennis Ensing.
