This workshop will provide an opportunity for those keenly interested in "how data on zooplankton and krill can be used to better understand and forecast the impacts of climate change on fisheries" to discuss the topic in an informal workshop atmosphere. It is expected that the workshop will demonstrate explicitly how information on zooplankton and krill contribute to better understanding of linkages between physics and fish. Furthermore, the workshop will likely generate novel ideas that will add to the open discussions during the Symposium itself.

It is anticipated that the workshop will produce a white paper that summarizes ongoing research activities as well as publications which link climate change to fisheries through changes in the food web in a variety of ecosystems – coastal, oceanic, upwelling, Arctic, and Antarctic. This will be a foundation document that shows where we are now and where we want to be in the future. It would also produce a set of recommendations for how we might move forward in our quest to better understand the mechanisms that link physics and fish through food chain interactions. Such a white paper could be found acceptable for publication, after peer review, in the "Horizons" section of the Journal of Plankton Research.
