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.
We test how an understanding of geographical variation in larval fitness in relation to temperature and habitat use could be a useful method to improve our understanding of recruitment and develop better indices of annual recruitment. The results have implications for...
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...
In July 2015, 49 plankton samples were collected from 50 m depth to the surface, across five transects in the Celtic Sea, of which, four crossed the Celtic Sea Front. Two distinct gelatinous communities were found in this dynamic shelf sea: a cold water community in...
