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.

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...
Fish abundance and catch data for the Northwest European Shelf and Mediterranean Sea from 2006 to 2098 derived from climate projections
The SS-DBEM is a mechanistic model, which means that it takes into account aspects of ecology (e.g. habitat preference, migration) and physiology (e.g. growth and reproduction) to determine biomass and distribution of fish species in response to changes in the...
CERES Synthesis report now available
The report identifies the risks, opportunities, and uncertainties of climate change for Europe’s fishery and aquaculture communities.
