A new European standard allows small fishing companies to perform self-assessment of the sustainability of their catches. The standard can help companies in documenting environmental, social and economic sustainability, and give estimates of the emission of CO2 per kg caught fish.
Climate changes are happening right now and they are threatening sustainable growth in aquaculture and fisheries worldwide. ClimeFish wants to draw the focus to the necessity of change, both when it comes to using opportunities while mitigating risks under the effects of climate change on aquaculture and fisheries.
The main objective of this work package is to estimate and quantify how climate changes impact Arctic fisheries and aquaculture, and the livelihood of communities and economic actors depending of these industries.
