Title: Interdisciplinary ocean and fisheries economics in action

Abstract: In the first part of the talk, I will introduce the emerging sub-discipline of Interdisciplinary Oceans and Fisheries Economics. Next, I illustrate how this sub-discipline is being implemented by presenting our Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada funded OceanCanada Partnership (OCP). With its 22 academic and non-academic partners from across Canada, OCP is dedicated to contributing to building resilient and sustainable oceans on all Canadian coasts and to supporting coastal communities as they respond to rapid and uncertain social-ecological changes. Finally, I present some examples of interdisciplinary ocean and fisheries economics research from my forthcoming book: Infinity Fish: Economics and the Future of Fish and Fisheries.
