Time Frame: 2016-2020
The CERES project – named after the Roman goddess of agriculture and fertility – is devoted to the questions as to how climate change willl influence Europe´s fish and shellfish resources and how industry can adapt to and benefit from future change. 1) Environment: CERES will project future changes in physical conditions of marine and inland waters relevant for fisheries and aquaculture industries. 2) Resources: Biological models will scale up physiological and ecological responses of target species to estimate future changes in the productivity of fish and shellfish resources. 3) Economy: Based on future social and economic scenarios, CERES will estimate consequences for the marine and inland fisheries and aquaculture industries. 4) Risks & Vulnerability: CERES will assess risks, adaptive capacity and vulnerability of European fisheries and aquaculture sectors using different conceptual models. 5) Solutions: CERES will provide viable “bottom-up” (industry-driven) solutions to minimize the risks and maximize potential benefits of climate change. CERES will also provide “top-down (policy & management) solutions and highlight challenges where current governance structures may hinder future adaptation.
