Within the WP6 the objectives are to relate climate variability with changes in pelagic food-web structure and assess the effects of ENSO events vs multidecadal fluctuations on species that are key to economic activities (fisheries, aquaculture, and ecotourism). The objectives can be divided into three tasks; first analysis of El Niño variability in pelagic living marine resources, second construct projections of future tipping points and multi-model comparison and third the participatory identification of ecosystem-based management options.
