Climate change and European Aquatic RESources
CERES for Blue Growth
From 2016 to 2020, CERES investigated how climate change will influence Europe’s most important fish and shellfish resources and the economic activities depending on them.
We developed tools and strategies that can help fisheries, aquaculture sectors and governments to prepare for the adverse changes or future benefits of climate change.
Research conducted by the CERES project features in the EU’s annual Blue Economy Report for 2020.
CERES researchers developed a methodology for simulating three key determinants of aquaculture carrying capacity: husbandry, environmental effects, and disease, capable of scaling to any farm size: the Aquaculture, Biosecurity, and Carrying Capacity (ABC) framework....
Future Socio-Political Scenarios for Aquatic Resources in Europe: A Common Framework Based on Shared-Socioeconomic-Pathways (SSPs)
It has proven extremely challenging for researchers to predict with confidence how human societies might develop in the future, yet managers and industries need to make projections in order to test adaptation and mitigation strategies designed to build resilience to...
Future Socio-Political Scenarios for Aquatic Resources in Europe: An Operationalized Framework for Aquaculture Projections
Climate-driven changes in aquatic environments have already started to affect the European aquaculture sector’s most commercially important finfish and shellfish species. In addition to changes in water quality and temperature that can directly influence fish...
