21 partners from 16 countries. The University of Tromsø is coordinating the project.

ClimeFish finished in March 2020.

For an overview of the main project outputs, including fact sheets for all 16 case studies, decision support software, and European Good Practice recommendations for creating Climate Adaptation Plans (CWA 17518:2020), see the project website



The core goal of ClimeFish was to help to ensure that seafood production could increase in areas and for species where there is a potential for sustainable growth, given the expected climate developments, and thereby contribute to both robust employment and the sustainable development of rural and coastal communities.

ClimeFish developed production scenarios that provided inputs to socio-economic analysis and identified risks and opportunities linked to climate changes.

The ClimeFish consortium included 21 partners from 16 countries, with scientists from universities, national research institutes and medium-sized enterprises.
