Task 1.

Simulation of different climate change scenarios

In Task 1., several fish trials will be carried out in order to simulate the exposure to different climate change scenarios, including long-term exposure to seawater warming and acidification, as well as short-term exposure to extreme weather events, i.e. heat waves. Pelagic and benthic juvenile fish species from both temperate (e.g. Diplodus sargus and Solea senegalensis) and subtropical/tropical (e.g. Diplodus cervinus and Zebrasoma scopas) will be used as models.
