*New OCEANADAPT web tool helps track distribution of marine species with
changing ocean conditions*

NOAA Fisheries and Rutgers University have released a new OCEANADAPT web
tool to help managers, scientists, fishing sectors and others track shifts
in the distribution of marine species with changes in ocean and climate

(web story)

OCEANADAPT provides users with

   - Information for 650 marine species in U.S. marine regions over the
   past 40 years.
   - Visual tools and a database to examine whether species distributions
   are changing, and the direction and pace of change.

Data for OCEANADAPT were provided by NOAA Fisheries and other entities and

OCEANADAPT is featured on the new Climate Resilience Toolkit (
toolkit.climate.gov) which provides online tools and training resources to
help build a climate-resilient nation.
