The Fisheries Strategies for Changing Oceans and Resilient Ecosystems by 2030 (FishSCORE 2030) will sustain fisheries as a global source of food and jobs, while protecting ocean ecosystem health and enhancing equitable benefits from fisheries.

The endorsed Decade Programme will bring together scientists, fishers, resource managers, community practitioners and policymakers to move marine fisheries towards climate resilience. It will develop frameworks to assess vulnerabilities, determine actionable adaptation options, and identify resilience-enhancing measures for fishery systems. It will nurture scientist-practitioner partnerships as it develops, applies, and improves these frameworks.

FishSCORE will help identify strategies that work in the real world to achieve healthy ecosystems, resilient fishery systems, and equitable benefits in the context of changing oceans.
