The Working Group of Small Pelagic Fishes, their Ecosystems and Climate Impact (WGSPEC) looks at the linkages between small pelagic fish and climate impacts.


WGSPEC studies mechanisms that link the variability of populations of small pelagic fish such as anchovy, sardine, sprat and herring, in different ocean basins under large-scale climatic forcing. The group gathers together scientists representing disciplines such as physical oceanography, atmospheric sciences, fisheries, and plankton. Members represent different northern and southern European countries and are involved either in ICES or in the Mediterranean Science Commission (CIESM).

The knowledge gathered and the new achievements of the group are effectively communicated within and beyond ICES. For this, the activities undertaken by WGSPEC have generated several papers published or in press, in peer-reviewed journals.‚Äč
