“Global overview of the applications of the Ecopath with Ecosim modeling approach using the EcoBase models repository” has been published in Ecological Modelling by Mathieu Colléter, Nereus Fellow (UBC), Audrey Valls, 2011-2014 Junior Research Fellow (UBC), and Daniel Pauly, Chair of the Nereus Steering Committee and a member of the Advisory Board.
Daniel Pauly, Chair of the Nereus Steering Committee and a member of the Advisory Board, and William Cheung, Director of the Nereus Program (Science) and Principle Investigator, have co-authored a paper titled “Polar lessons learned: long-term management based on shared threats in Arctic and Antarctic environments” in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment. This paper looks at the threats to the Arctic and Antarctic polar regions, including climate change, pollution, fisheries overexploitation, and invasive species. The paper advises that “until the greenhouse-gas emissions that drive climate change can be reduced, it is crucial to address other threats (including pollution, fisheries overharvesting, and invasive species) that interact with climate change.”
A report entitled “Predicting Future Oceans: Climate Change, Oceans & Fisheries” newly released by the Nereus program, an international interdisciplinary research program aimed at predicting future oceans, suggests that future seafood supply in the world will be substantially altered by climate change, overfishing and habitat destruction if we do not take actions.
Daniel Pauly, the chair of the Nereus Steering Committee, received the Peter Benchley Ocean Award for Excellence in Science. Named in honour of Peter Benchley, the author of Jaws and a…
