Nereus member Julia Mason and other collaborators, developed and applied a novel framework to build climate resilient fisheries.
This framework examines fisheries through 3 critical dimensions: a) ecological, b) socio-economic and c) governance, while also applying 5 resilience domains: assets, flexibility, organization, learning and agency.
In addition to developing this framework, these resilience attributes are described in action for specific context, capacities, and scale of each fisheries system. A truly personalized approach to building resilience in fisheries with unique characteristics and challenges, not only in the ecological dimension, but also the often overlooked social dimension.
The authors claim this framework is a valuable starting point for critical application of resilience concepts to fisheries socio-ecological systems.
