ClimeFish marine fisheries meeting

On the 7-8th of March, modellers from the three ClimeFish sectors, Marine Fisheries, Aquaculture and Lake&Ponds, met in Copenhagen to discuss biological forecasting, models and data format.

ClimeFish members came from Norway, Sweden, Spain, Scotland and Italy. On the agenda was the climate scenarioes and modelling of both demersal and pelagic fisheries in the North Atlantic, Baltic, North West of Scotland and Lake Garda.

Biological forecasting for RCP 2.6 (optimistic), 4.5 (likely) and 8.5 (worst) future climate scenarios was planned in the ClimeFish proposal. However, current climate conditions are already following the worst scenario. Therefore, the forecasting effort of WP3 will concentrate on scenarios RCP 4.5 and 8.5.

More meetings concerning biological forecasting are planned and will be announced here.
