Modelling Teams

FishMIP simulations would not happen without the contributions of many marine ecosystem modellers working together from different regions of the world.

For more detailed information on each modelling team’s past contributions to ISIMIP simulations and how to cite their outputs please see here.

FishMIP is an open community and continues to grow. Currently our ensemble comprises up to 9 global models and over 30 regional marine ecosystem models. Please refer to our Protocol Page to participate in our Simulation Rounds.

Global Modelling Teams

Coordinators: Camilla Novaglio & Ryan Heneghan

Tittensor et al. 2021

Our global model ensemble has evolved through time and has supported a wide range of studies, including policy reports on long-term climate impacts for the IPCC 5th and 6th assessments.

Our current global model members are listed below.

We are excited to currently have over 30 regional marine ecosystem modelers, who have contributed shapefiles to our map above and are planning to contribute to our FishMIP 2.0 simulations. We also welcome variants or these or bespoke model types provided they are published and skill assessed. To ensure consistency and standardisation of our simulations please follow our specific regional model implementation guidelines. Or contact the relevant coordinators above for any questions.

We are striving towards regional model ensembles - case studies with more than one model per region - to help support regional scale climate risk assessments and fisheries management adaptation plans.
