Changing climate and anomalous events are exposing ecosystems of the North Pacific Ocean to conditions outside past norms. The North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICS) and the North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission (NPAFC) are convening a consortium of partners to design, test, and implement an international ocean intelligence system to utilize partnerships, innovative monitoring, data mobilization and analytical methods to provide timely knowledge and advice to decision-makers about the effects of climate on ocean basin conditions and coastal socio-ecological systems. This system will inform decisions on fisheries management, fisheries compliance, food security, ecological restoration, and much more. A concept proposal known as BECI (Basin-scale Events to Coastal Impacts) has been endorsed by the UN Decade of Ocean Science. This program builds on the work done as part of the International Year of the Salmon (IYS) and the IYS 2019, 2020 and 2022 High Seas Expeditions.
