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.
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...
Critically examining the knowledge base required to mechanistically project climate impacts: A case study of Europe’s fish and shellfish
CERES researchers examined the data available in the published literature on the effects of climate change-related environmental factors on the most economically important marine and freshwater finfish and shellfish in Europe. First, a semi‐systematic literature...
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...
