Terms of Reference
  1. Guide ongoing deliverables to address the goals of FUTURE through commentaries and in the peer reviewed literature;

  2. Contribute to the development of the PICES North Pacific Ecosystem Status Report by providing information on status and trends of HAB occurrence in the eastern and western Pacific;

  3. Contribute to the development of a Global HAB status report (ICES, PICES, IOC) by including taxonomy information, and biogeography data from the PICES region;

  4. Convene a joint PICES/ ICES/IOC/SCOR open science meeting in 2015 to assess the purported links between climate change and HAB character, frequency and severity;

  5. Produce a summary report on current status of HAB mitigation strategies and research;

  6. Continue PICES member country data entry into the joint ICES-PICES harmful algal event database (HAE-DAT) to allow global comparison of changes in harmful algal blooms.
