Introduction to FOO (5 mins)

Short Talks from Panel
Marine environments in transition: Planning and responding to changes across daily to seasonal and decadal time scales

Chair: Dr Jessica Benthuysen (Australian Institute of Marine Science)

  • Dr Alistair Hobday (CSIRO) – perspectives on working with marine industries on climate extremes and adaptation, and ocean data and modelling needs across time scales
  • Dr Claire Spillman (Bureau of Meteorology) – application of operational products for fisheries and aquaculture
  • Dr Arani Chandrapavan (WA Fisheries and Marine Research Laboratories, Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development) – using environmental data to inform stock assessment and fisheries management
  • Mr Martin Exel (Austral Fisheries) – perspectives on ocean data and modelling needs for fishing operations

Q&A and Panel Discussion

  • Clarifying priorities and needs for marine industry and marine managers in decision making on how climate, marine heatwaves, temperature affect their operations on a range of time scales;
  • Identifying what operational oceanography components (e.g. observations and models) are required so marine industries and managing agencies have the decision-making tools to improve financial, social, and environmental outcomes;
  • Advancing operational oceanography to close the gap between ocean data and modelling through the delivery of products to suit end-user needs.
