Modeling marine fish species spatiotemporal distributions utilizing NASA earth system data in a maximum entropy framework
Fishermen rely on their on-the-water experience to know where and when to find certain species of fish in the Gulf of Maine, and managers use their knowledge of fish and the fishery to design management policies, such as seasonal closures, aimed at ensuring sustainability. Increasingly, climate change is altering historical relationships between the physical environment and our fishery resources, and challenging both fishermen and managers. Conditions in the Gulf of Maine are changing at a relatively rapid pace with warming in this region over the past decade outpacing 99% of the global ocean. The ability to understand where fish are likely to be and when they are likely to be there is critical for ....
