Your post prompts me to ask: What is dynamic ocean management?"
Over the past 20-odd years we have implemented and/or discussed Marine
Protected Areas (MPAs)-- some at the scale implied by the word ocean;
Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) which was implicitly focused on areas
larger than typical MPAs and was centrally concerned with the dynamic
nature of ocean ecosystems; and, most recently Regional Ocean Management
(ROM) , exemplified in the U.S. by the 2015 major report of the
Inter-agency Ocean Management Task Force which spurred the development
of more comprehensive ocean management plans in the New England and
Mid-Atlantic Regions. Of course, one can argue whether or not any of
these efforts have reversed the trajectory of decline of ocean
resources. I suspect that Dynamic Ocean Management (DOM) is a response
to this frustration, but how is it different from or similar to these
The words matter. Thanks for pointing me and perhaps others in the

The town hall will also feature current and in-development dynamic ocean management applications.

> Dynamic ocean management is an emerging approach to ocean management that relies on current data to guide the temporal and spatial distribution of resource and oceanscape use. Developed to address a fundamental challenge – how to balance economic viability with ecological sustainability– and fueled by advances in remote sensing, archival tagging, hand-held technology, and species-distribution modelling, dynamic ocean management approaches provide critical information to ocean users and managers on changing ocean conditions and ecosystems.

The key question-- bearing not only on science
but all our beliefs about what is right and what
wrong, social progress, and justice– that we must
urgently answer is: "How do we know what is true?"
