Climate change and European Aquatic RESources
CERES for Blue Growth
CERES advances a cause-and-effect understanding of how climate change will influence Europe’s most important fish and shellfish resources and the economic activities depending on them. It will provide tools and develop adaptive strategies allowing fisheries and aquaculture sectors and their governance to prepare for adverse changes or future benefits of climate change.
A video about the CERES project was recently featured on the Universität Hamburg website as part of the university’s centenary celebrations.
CERES scientists conducted standardised ensemble projections including six global fisheries and marine ecosystem models, forced with two Earth-system models and four emission scenarios in a fished and unfished ocean, to derive average trends and associated...read more
Critically examining the knowledge base required to mechanistically project climate impacts: A case study of Europe’s fish and shellfish
CERES researchers examined the data available in the published literature on the effects of climate change-related environmental factors on the most economically important marine and freshwater finfish and shellfish in Europe. First, a semi‐systematic literature...read more
The Baltic Sea is a shallow, semi-enclosed brackish sea suffering like many other coastal seas from eutrophication caused by human impact. Hence, nutrient load abatement strategies are intensively discussed. With the help of a high-resolution, coupled...read more
