Abstrakt

Arctic marine resources overlap is increasing (in space and time) a
s climate change narrows the availability of
appropriate habitat ranges for existing species to survive, and new species enter and compete. This challenges
the management of both commercial and ecosystem
-valued species. Two invasive crab species (snow crab
and
red king crab) offer a platform to explore adaptive conservation challenges for Arctic countries facing dynamic
and spatial changes in new (crab) and existing (benthic and commercial) resource productivity. Shifting supply
(US, CAN, NOR, RUS) and incr
easing demand (esp. Asia) add economic uncertainty to the ecological changes.
Ongoing sovereign and international policy interests matter, as they evolve in ongoing legal cases. The crabs
differ in their uncertainty, biology, economic, climatic and political factors. We exploit these differences using
quantitative and qualitative data in a bioeconomic framework that spans time and space dimensions. The crab
invasions in the Barents Sea region serve as a building block for broader pan Arctic conservation iss
ues in the
Year of Polar Prediction and beyond. Optimal decision
-making regarding commercial species such as crab in
ecosystems must incorporate how strategic institutional shifts, occurring in response to the economic
incentives, asymmetrically affect local and global stakeholders in addition to standard concerns over ecological
and economic damages amidst climate change.
