Future of Marine Animal Populations (FMAP)

Future of Marine Animal Populations' (FMAP) mission within the Census was to describe and synthesize globally changing patterns of species abundance, distribution, and diversity, and to model the effects of fishing, climate change and other key variables on those patterns. This work was done across ocean realms and with an emphasis on understanding past changes and predicting future scenarios.
