AZTI participates in a European research project called SMARTFISH-H2020, coordinated by SINTEF Ocean in Norway, which aim is to develop technological solutions to an efficient, compliant and environmentally sustainable fishing sector.
(Saturday, November 18, 2017)
Setting the effects of climate change on the fisheries of Spanish fleets is the aim of Cliremar project (Climate scenarios of the vulnerable marine resources of Spain), which will be developed by AZTI until June 2018. The work will be carried out by means of the future simulation of four relevant species such as eel, bluefin tuna, Atlantic bigeye tuna and Cantabrian anchovy.
Global ocean warming is causing displacements towards the north of the fish, deep migrations and advancement of its phenology. Currently, exploited species assessment and management do not take into account the effects of climate change. The incorporation of these effects can be key for the viability of certain species that are in a delicate situation and that are of great interest for the Spanish fleet.
The Technical Committee welcomes the submission of abstracts for oral and poster presentation at the III. Cross Border Conference on Climate and Coastal Change – UHINAK, which will be held in Irun (Spain) on March 6 and 7, 2018.
In this third edition the scope of the conference is wider and it covers the Atlantic Europe. The deadline for submission is 23 October 2017.
Accepted abstracts will be published in the Marine Research Journal (RIM) published by AZTI Tecnalia’s Marine Research Division.

Iñigo Losada, Director of Research at IH Cantabria, will open this third edition of the conference as the keynote speaker.
