The ICES/PICES Strategic Initiative on Climate Change effects on Marine Ecosystems (SICCME) workshop on projecting modelling (WKSICCME_Project) took place on 10–12 August 2015 in Seattle, Washington, USA. The workshop was attended by 63 scientists from 10 nations. The workshop was convened by: Anne Hollowed (USA), Kirstin Hols-man (USA), Shin-ichi Ito (Japan), Michio Kawamiya (Japan), Trond Kristiansen (Nor-way), Myron Peck (Germany), John Pinnegar (UK), Cisco Werner (USA). The workshop was funded by ICES, PICES, the Norwegian Research Council, NOAA’s Climate Program Office and NOAA Fisheries.WKSICCME was convened to:a ) Identify a suite of representative future fishing and ecosystem scenarios that could be employed for use in evaluating climate change effects on fish and fisheries;b ) Identify a suite of climate models and representative concentration pathways that would be used to project climate change;c ) Identify suites of single species climate enhanced projection models, multi-species climate enhanced projection models, full food web (e.g., EcoSIM), and dynamic spatially explicit ecosystem models that would be used to project the implications of a) and b) on commercially important marine fish stocks in the northern hemisphere.
