Oceans Past, Present & Future: Historical Ecology & Circumpolar Fisheries Management

The Pacific cod fishery is in decline, threatening economic and cultural stability along the North Pacific coastline. This decline has been blamed on marine heatwaves caused by “the blob”, which raises sea surface temperatures and threatens cod survival.Join the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future for a virtual symposium on Wednesday, March 3 titled “Oceans Past, Present & Future: Historical Ecology & Circumpolar Fisheries Management.” The symposium — featuring a keynote address by Loren McClenachan (Elizabeth and Lee Ainslie Associate Professor of Environmental Studies at Colby College) and an interdisciplinary panel of resource managers, climatologists, anthropologists, and archaeologists — will seek to identify the types of data that can be extracted from long-term archaeological, historical, and paleoenvironmental records, and to strategize about how these records can be used in the future.The keynote and panel will be streamed live on the Pardee Center’s YouTube channel.The symposium is co-sponsored by the BU Archaeology Program, the BU Department of Anthropology, and the BU Marine Program.RSVPKeynote: 12:00 pm ETLoren McClenachan, Elizabeth and Lee Ainslie Associate Professor of Environmental Studies, Colby CollegePanel Discussion: 3:00 pm ETBruce Anderson, Professor, Earth & Environment, Boston UniversityJason Addison, Research Geologist, United States Geological Survey (USGS)Steve Barbeaux, Research Biologist, Alaska Fisheries Science Center – NOAAKate Reedy, Professor & Chair, Department of Anthropology, Idaho State UniversityCatherine West, Research Assistant Professor, Archaeology & Anthropology, Boston UniversityMike Etnier, Affiliate Research Associate, Western Washington UniversityDiscussant: Torrey Rick, Curator of North American Archaeology, Smithsonian Institution
