Resolving the Multiple Impacts of Anthropogenic Eutrophication on Coastal Fish and Fisheries

Coastal and estuarine ecosystems worldwide are becoming increasingly degraded, largely at the hands of anthropogenic influences. Several intertwining factors including eutrophication, harmful algal blooms, hypoxic events, ocean acidification and habitat degradation pose significant threats to the management and conservation of fish species. While scientists have been assessing many of these impacts for decades, our understanding, tools, and management approaches are constantly evolving. The objectives of this symposium are to 1) highlight the most recent and pertinent research on these topics and 2) chart future directions for fisheries scientists and managers. We aim to elicit broad discussion and draw contributions from a diversity of leading experts, young professionals, and students who are actively advancing this discipline of fisheries science.
