While governments and natural resourcemanagers grapple with how to respond to climaticchanges, many marine-dependent individuals,organisations and user-groups in fast-changing regions ofthe world are already adjusting their behaviour toaccommodate these. However, we have little informationon the nature of these autonomous adaptations that arebeing initiated by resource user-groups. The east coast ofTasmania, Australia, is one of the world’s fastest warmingmarine regions with extensive climate-driven changes inbiodiversity already observed. We present and compareexamples of autonomous adaptations from marine users ofthe region to provide insights into factors that may haveconstrained or facilitated the available range ofautonomous adaptation options and discuss potentialinteractions with governmental planned adaptations. Weaim to support effective adaptation by identifying the suiteof changes that marine users are making largely withoutgovernment or management intervention, i.e. autonomousadaptations, to better understand these and their potentialinteractions with formal adaptation strategies.
