The global wild marine fish harvest increased fourfold between 1950 and its current peak, reflecting interactions between human and ecological drivers. This talk will examine these interactions in an Earth System perspective, using a coupled fishery-economics model. I will use a combination of hindcast simulations and future scenarios to highlight the major role of economic drivers, with climate change increasingly important under effective management. I will conclude by discussing results from the recent Fishery Model Intercomparison Project (FishMIP), which suggest pervasive biomass reduction and amplification of this decline at higher trophic levels under high emission scenarios.
