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...
