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.
Linking individual physiological indicators to the productivity of fish populations: A case study of Atlantic herring
Physiological measures can help to identify environmental thresholds that constrain organismal-level performance. Relating these thresholds, in a cause-and-effect manner, to long-term changes in the vital rates (e.g. growth, survival, reproduction) of wild populations...
Changes in fish distribution are being observed across the globe. In Europe’s Common Fisheries Policy, the share of the catch of each fish stock is split among management areas using a fixed allocation key known as ‘Relative Stability’: in each management area, member...
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...
