Proceedings of a national peer review on ecological risk criteria to support integrated oceans management: Fs70-4/2017-032E-PDF

December 9-11, 2014, Ottawa, Ontario /

"Integrated Oceans Management (IOM) is an approach to planning and managing human activities in the marine environment in order to reduce the potential for conflict and to ensure the sustainable use of shared marine resources and ocean space. A national science advisory process was held on December 9-11, 2014 in Ottawa, Ontario to provide advice on a scientifically-sound approach for determining the impact of an anthropogenic pressure on ecosystem components and the ecological function they provide. A total of 26 participants, including experts from Fisheries and Oceans Canada and external organisations, attended this advisory process. Science advice produced at this meeting includes an approach for identifying the degree of impact from a pressure on an ecosystem component, and ultimately on the ecosystem function it provides. Within this approach are ecological impact criteria that are based on increasing degrees of impact on ecosystem function, as result of changes to an ecosystem component. The approach developed at this meeting represents only one aspect of a more comprehensive risk management process for IOM”--Summary, p. iv.
