WP7: Develop the ClimeFish Decision Support Framework

Decision support is meant to improve decision-making processes and lead to better results. It shall not replace human decisions but show the consequences of different decision options and provide advice. In this work package we will collect all tools developed within the project to improve decision making and make them available. Examples for decision support tools are maps, management plans and policy briefs. Additionally we will develop a decision support software.

Based on input from other work packages, the software will simulate and visualize the impacts of different climate change scenarios on fish stocks and aquaculture including economic and socioeconomic impacts. This information will help to make more reliable predictions and therefore also better decisions for the future.
