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.
CERES researchers investigated the effects of three sea surface oceanographic variables (temperature, salinity and chlorophyll a) on the abundance of eggs and larvae of two summer-spawning species in the NW Mediterranean sea, the anchovy Engraulis encrasicolus and the...
The effects of increasing fishing pressure in combination with temperature increases in the Nordic and Barents Seas have been evaluated using an end-to-end model for the area forced by a downscaled RCP 4.5 climate scenario. The scenarios that have been applied have...
Combined effects of warming and acidification on accumulation and elimination dynamics of paralytic shellfish toxins in mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis
This study evaluated the impact of increasing seawater temperature and acidification on the accumulation/elimination dynamics of HAB-toxins in shellfish. The present work is the first assessing the combined effect of climate change drivers on accumulation/elimination...
