Local climate change impacts on aquatic ecosystems and fisheries

Climate change is expected to significantly change the availability and trade of fishery products due to changes in the distribution and productivity of marine and freshwater species. However, the high diversity in aquatic systems and their associated fisheries result in a mosaic of impacts and responses at the local scale which have not been comprehensively documented yet. Led by Sara Miñarro, partners in the LICCI research network will collect local level data of local fishery changes and resulting adaptations of fishing communities around the world.

The fisheries data collection protocol has its own DOI and is publicly
available online:
