Fisheries sector accommodates climate change

Climate change has an influence on important fish, shellfish and crustacean stocks, such as flatfish, mackerel, herring and mussels and, consequently, on economic activity associated with those stocks. We, within the scope of the international CERES project, are developing potential policy strategies for the accommodation of both the unfavourable and favourable effects of future climate change. We do so on the basis of IPCC climate scenarios and sector socio-economic knowledge and data. Our work contributes to sustainable fisheries.
