1 Barents Sea Ecosystem Resilience under global environmental change Annual Meeting – December Paris

2 BarEcoRe Annual Meeting – 4-7 December Paris Bar-EcoRe: main objective evaluate the effects of global environmental change on the future structure and resilience of the Barents Sea ecosystem

3 BarEcoRe Annual Meeting – 4-7 December Paris Bar-EcoRe: main objective evaluate the effects of global environmental change on the future structure and resilience of the Barents Sea ecosystem quantitative data analysis and modelling climate and fishing- induced species comp, spatial structure, trophic network ability to absorb disturbance and maintain function fish and benthos communities

4 BarEcoRe Annual Meeting – 4-7 December Paris Bar-EcoRe: more specific questions What are the key characteristics of past temporal and spatial variations in fish and benthos communities and how are these related to past climate variability and fishing pressure? How does climate variability and change propagate through the Barents Sea ecosystem and influences species interactions? How can the combined effects of fisheries and climate modify the spatial distribution of plankton, benthos and fish species in the Barents Sea? What determines vulnerability or resilience of the Barents Sea ecosystem and how will these be affected by possible future changes in climate and fisheries regimes? Can we detect early warning signals and can we evaluate management strategies with regards to ecosystem resilience?

6 BarEcoRe Annual Meeting – 4-7 December Paris Bar-EcoRe: The Stakeholder Panel Stakeholders Panel ThinkingWorkingDisseminating provide advice to ensure that results are presented in a form understandable and useful to managers

7 BarEcoRe Annual Meeting – 4-7 December Paris Bar-EcoRe: previous meetings Kick-off - June days, in Tromsø Project Participants and Scientific Advisory Panel Annual meeting – October days, in Herdla Project Participants, Scientific Advisory Panel Stakeholder Panel Start – June 2010End – May 2013 You are here

8 BarEcoRe Annual Meeting – 4-7 December Paris Annual meeting 2012: BarEcoRe Science highlights

9 BarEcoRe Annual Meeting – 4-7 December Paris Questions and comments from SHP in 2011 Concrete examples of possible applications to management New tools in support to management Predictability of Barents Sea ecosystem Fill in knowledge gap Dissemination through Arctic Council and NFR plateforms

10 BarEcoRe Annual Meeting – 4-7 December Paris How did BarEcoRe address these issues? Clarifying the concept of ecological resilience Assessing ecosystem resilience Perspectives on predictability Dissemination
