Task 5.

Simulation of different climate change scenarios

Task 5. aims to develop and implement a model using a Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) approach to simulate how fish species with different habitats 
and life strategies (temperate vs. tropical and pelagic vs. benthic) acquire energy and channel it towards different physiological processes (e.g. growth, respiration and excretion). Such approach will also enable to determine which climate change-related stressors are more likely to affect fish energy budget.
