Climate change and European Aquatic RESources
CERES for Blue Growth
CERES is investigating how climate change will influence Europe’s most important fish and shellfish resources and the economic activities depending on them.
We will develop tools and strategies that help fisheries, aquaculture sectors and governments to prepare for the 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 researchers validated and analyzed an ensemble of regional climate change scenarios for the North Sea. Towards the end of the 21st century the projected North Sea SST increases by 1.5 ∘C (RCP 2.6), 2 ∘C (RCP 4.5), and 4 ∘C (RCP 8.5), respectively. Under this...
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...
Mediterranean jellyfish as novel food: effects of thermal processing on antioxidant, phenolic, and protein contents
CERES researchers showed that thermal treatment can be used as a first stabilisation step on three common Mediterranean jellyfish. This process affected protein and phenolic contents of their main body parts. The antioxidant activity was assessed in thermally treated...
