The Climate Change Forum for Fisheries and Aquaculture was initiated in 2021 and established to discuss and exchange knowledge about climate change and its impacts on the fisheries and aquaculture sectors. Climate change is a long-term issue but with marked impacts already on fisheries and aquaculture. The Forum contributes to our knowledge and understanding of how fisheries and aquaculture can address climate change and adapt to changing environmental ocean conditions brought about by climate change. The Forum is designed to focus on the Nordic cases and the emerging and evolving role of ICES as a science provider for more complex Marine Spatial Planning issues in the era of offshore wind.
The purpose of this Forum is to frame these current issues of energy and food production into a Nordic cooperation frame: How can Nordic countries learn from experiences to prepare, with ICES, for a sustainable multi-use of Nordic marine areas?
The workshop is organised by the Nordic Marine Think Tank (NMTT) in collaboration with International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES).
