Integrated multidisciplinary ocean observations are a key contributor to understanding ocean processes, variability and changes which have profound implications to support robust climate- and ocean-related forecasts, predictions, and projections to guide fisheries management, aquaculture development and adaptation strategies that reduce risk and increase coastal resilience. The session will cover topics (but not limited) on the power of integrated coastal ocean observing long-term time series data that provide knowledge of the past, present state of the oceans, including fish and other living resources, and are useful for predicting future changes. This session will also highlight the key gaps and future needs of coastal observations, full data lifecycle from data procurement , processing, product development and communication to effectively monitor and manage marine ecosystems and fisheries in a changing climate.
