Grieg’s participation in ClimeFish brings hands on experience and expertise from both the Southern and the Northern part of Norway. These regions will be differently affected by climate changes; e.g. the South may be particularly exposed increased seawater temperatures because of the already high summer temperatures in that region. Together with Grieg, ClimeFish will deliver a forecasting model that will simulate and analyze changes related to climate changes in Norway as well as assist the industry to adapt accordingly.
