Abstract

The impacts of climate change on marine fish and fisheries are evident around Australia, and responding to these challenges over the next decade is critical for continued sustainability. Recent years have seen the rise of climate and fishery research; however, looking further into the past can inform future approaches to fishery research, management and monitoring. We assess the progress over 25 years, on the basis of a set of recommendations made at the first Australian workshop addressing climate concerns for fisheries. The nine workshop recommendations are still relevant today, and although monitoring efforts have been significant and knowledge has accumulated rapidly, implementation of management and policy responses have lagged. We suggest that this is because societal and fisher awareness of climate change have lagged, in part because climate change has not been considered the most pressing issue over this time. To successfully respond to the climate-change challenges to Australian fisheries over the next decade, a concerted effort directed at a wide range of stakeholders to foster support for climate-ready fishery policies and programs is needed.
