"CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE OCEANS OF TOMORROW" EXHIBITION AT IPMA

Updated: Nov 2, 2021

The research team of Project FISHBUDGET was invited to participate in the scientific committee of the traveling exhibition "Climate Change and the Oceans of the Future", organized by MARE - Center of Sciences of the Sea and the Environment of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, and hosted by the Museu do Mar Rei D. Carlos, Cascais. This exhibition was kindly made available for display in the Portuguese Institute of Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) from October 1 to December 31, 2021. The

exhibition addressed climate change effects on marine ecosystems, tackling impacts on specific habitats (mangroves, coral reefs) and on relevant socio-economic activities, like fishing and aquaculture. The potential interactive effects between climate change effects and other environmental stressors (pollutants, toxic algal blooms and pathogens), as well as the adaptation/mitigation strategies presently being developed and implemented are also explored.
