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.
Harmful Fouling Communities on Fish Farms in the SW Mediterranean Sea: Composition, Growth and Reproductive Periods
CERES researchers monitored community composition, growth rate and reproductive potential of biofouling on fish cages over two seasonal periods of fry cages farming, located in southern Spain (SW Alboran Sea), with a special focus on cnidarians. Biomass and community...
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...
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...
