The ICES-PICES Strategic Initiative on Climate Change Impacts on Marine Ecosys-tems (SICCME) workshop on changes in spatial distribution (WKSICCME-Spatial) took place on 22–24 May 2013 in St Petersburg, Russia. The workshop was attended by 67 scientists from 13 nations as well as representatives from ICES, PICES and the FAO. The workshop was chaired by Anne Hollowed (USA, PICES), Suam Kim (Ko-rea, PICES) and Myron Peck (Germany, ICES). The workshop was convened to foster the development and testing of analytical methods for detecting changes in distribu-tion, assessing the skill of different modelling approaches, and quantifying uncertain-ty in projected changes. Other important topics were how best to design a global database of marine observations and the strategies used to assess vulnerability (of resources and those that depend upon them) to shifts in distribution.
