What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools

  1. 1. BlueBRIDGE receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 675680 www.bluebridge-vres.eu What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools Scott Large, International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) scott.large@ices.dk @nucellagrande “BlueBRIDGE Workshop 21 September 2016, Riga, Latvia ICES ASC 2016 #ICESASC16
  2. 2. Overview of workshop goals • Brainstorm on how to better implement VREs into ICES processes • How can VREs be set up to solve specific problems • What are new collaborative opportunities that VREs can facilitate? • What tools does BlueBRIDGE need to implement to support ICES activities 9/21/2016 "What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools” Riga, Latvia 2
  3. 3. The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea • Role in BlueBRIDGE – develop VREs under BlueASSESSMENT Pillar 9/21/2016 "What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools” Riga, Latvia 3
  4. 4. Background • ICES provides advice on the sustainable use of living marine resources and protection of the marine environment. • Fishing opportunities – for >225 fish stocks across the northeast Atlantic • Ecosystem Overviews • Fishery Overviews • Technical Services 9/21/2016 "What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools” Riga, Latvia 4
  5. 5. Scientific and Technical Challenges • Ecosystem approach to management • Increasing need for high powered computing: • Ecosystem models • Mixed-fisheries models • Single-stock forecasts • Management strategy evaluations 9/21/2016 "What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools” Riga, Latvia 5
  6. 6. Scientific and Technical Challenges • Ecosystem understanding required for marine management • Universal tools to support management action are being developed, but broad implementation is challenging • Within the EU • FAO, ICCAT, National Governments, and etc. 9/21/2016 "What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools” Riga, Latvia 6
  7. 7. Use cases • Horse makerel (Trachurus trachurus) Management Strategy Evaluation (MSE) • José de Oliviera - CEFAS • North Sea Multi-fleet, mixed-fishery model (MS-model) • Robert Thorpe - CEFAS 9/21/2016 "What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools” Riga, Latvia 7 FAO Thorpe et al 2015
  8. 8. MSE • Identify robust harvest control rules • Maximize economic and sustainable yield 9/21/2016 "What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools” Riga, Latvia 8 FAO
  9. 9. MS-model • Identify trade-offs among fished species and between yield and ecosystem characteristics • Ensemble approach provides uncertainty intervals for management 9/21/2016 "What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools” Riga, Latvia 9 Thorpe et al 2015 Thorpe et al 2016
  10. 10. Outcomes • Facilitate ICES advisory process • Improve the tools managers use to make decisions • «Sand box» for model development and exploration of parameter settings • State of the art models for training, education, and dissemination to other interested users 9/21/2016 "What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools” Riga, Latvia 10
  11. 11. Future Steps • VRE production began in June 2016 and first version will be available by autumn • Expand MSE and MS-model for additional stocks and regions • Additonal VREs for mixed-fisherys, data limited stock assessment, single-species forecasting are also in development. 9/21/2016 "What can «blue» do for you: overcoming ICES challenges with BlueBRIDGE tools” Riga, Latvia 11
