The Gulf of California is one of the most productive fishing regions in the world, and contains Mexico's most important fisheries. It is also home to 8 million people, many of whom rely on the Gulf for their livelihoods. As in most of the world's coastal areas, climate change and overfishing threaten both social well-being and ecosystem health. Coastal Marine Spatial Planning is a tool for sustainable management, where human activities are allocated in space and time to meet ecological, economic and social objectives. Dr. Mozaria-Luna will describe how this is being implemented in the Northern Gulf to better organize and manage fisheries.
