The ICES/PICES Workshop on Economic Modelling of the Effects of Climate Change on Fish and Fisheries (WKeconSICCME) was convened on 3–4 June 2016 in Brest, France. The workshop arose out of the August 2015 of the Structural Initiative on the Effects of Climate Change on the Marine Environment (SICCME) workshop and an awareness of the need to develop economic and social pathways to include in different efforts to model the impacts of climate change on fish and fisheries. The workshop was chaired by Alan Haynie (USA), Sophie Gourguet (France), John Pinnegar (UK), Lisa Pfeiffer (USA), and Jörn Schmidt (Germany) and followed the ‘Understanding marine socio-ecological sys-tems’ symposium (MSEAS) which was held the previous week in Brest. Associating this workshop with MSEAS significantly reduced its cost, as virtually all participants attend-ed the MSEAS meeting earlier in the week. The workshop was funded by NOAA and hosted by IFREMER.
