The Gulf of California (GOC) is a region of high biodiversity that supports the majority of Mexico’s commercial and sport fisheries. During 2014-2020, this region experienced a period of intense oceanic warming and decreased productivity (chlorophyll-a concentration) compared to satellite (1980-2020) or historical (1900- 2020) data.
This Decade initiative is a multidisciplinary collaboration of institutions and independent stakeholders from Mexico and USA to evaluate the impacts of present and future climatic conditions on the biodiversity and fisheries of the GOC and to identify mitigation strategies during the decade 2020-2030.
