Marine Ecosystem Evolution in a Changing Environment

Objective: Develop a hydrodynamic coupling model: Nutrients- phytoplankton-zooplankton-detritus (NPZD) for the Bay of Biscay.

Use this model in different climate scenarios of the IPCC to simulate and evaluate future productivity changes in the Bay of Biscay.

Add a higher trophic level model than that of the NPZD model to evaluate the consequences of primary production changes on the species being fished.

Implement an operational model to simulate the consequences of different management measures in diverse climate scenarios.
