  • Contribute to the development of IMBER-ADApT, a decision support tool for global change responses!
    Submit case studies dealing with marine fisheries and aquaculture issues! 
 

The IMBER Human Dimensions Working Group is developing a decision support tool IMBER-ADApT to respond to global change.

We need case studies dealing with fisheries and aquaculture issues, to learn which actions should (or should not) be taken in response to environmental or other global changes.

To contribute a case study, or for more information, see: http://www.imber.info/index.php/Science/Working-Groups/Human-Dimensions/IMBER-ADApT
