The possible effects of climate change on Chilean marine ecosystems are considered. Relationships between the abundance of exploited species, fishing effort and environmental variables are elucidated, and conceptual models for an ecosystemic management of fisheries are proposed. A projection for anchovy fisheries in northern Chile is carried out, considering four different temporal climatic change scenarios until 2100. Finally, indications on the necessity to evaluate the spatio-temporal fisheries performance, given the climate change scenario, are suggested.
