2nc CLimate Impacts on Oceanic TOp Predators Symposium - New Caledonia - 11-15 February 2013

The general objective of CLIOTOP is to organise a large-scale worldwilde comparative effort aimed at elucidating the key process involved in the impact of both climate variability (at various scale) and fishing on the structure and function of open ocean pelagic ecosystems and their top predator species. The ultimate objective is the development of a reliable predictive capability for the dynamics of top predator populations and oceanic ecosystems that combines both fishing and climate (i.e. environmental) effects.
