    • Coarse scale climate projections do not capture local conditions relevant to aquaculture.
    • Use of coarse scale models for climate change impact assessment is misleading at farm level.
    • Difference between modelled and measured temperature has considerable implications for production.
    • Farm measurements can be used to calibrate climate projections to local scale.
