FOL in CETMAR for climate change outreach events
Future Oceans lab participated this week in two events held for advancing on solutions for climate change in fisheries. Elena Ojea gave an overview on the challenges of fisheries governance, in a one-day session that also involved Juan Carlos Surís (UVigo), Antonio García Allut (University of Coruña), Françoise Bretton (UAB) and Jose Luís Satiago (CETMAR). This thematic workshop was held in the context of the Social Sciences Aspects of Fisheries (SAF-21) project, funded by the EU Horizon 2020 Marie-Curie MSCA-ETN programme. During both days, all of the young PhD involved on SAF21 and other attendants were following and discussing different themes related to management and governance of marine fish stocks and climate change impacts.
Elena Ojea also participated in the Galician Climathon, which took part in at CETMAR (Centro Tecnológico del Mar) in Vigo. Now focusing on climate change and marine resources, participants worked on the impacts and adaptation and mitigation proposals for the fishing industry, fisheries, aquaculture and social innovation. Participants from SAF-21, EU-H2020 project Climefish and members of the local research community contributed to the discussions. We had the chance to present our group and the ways we are contributing to fisheries adaptation through our research. Other interesting presentations were held by Antón Álvarez Salgado on aquaculture (IIM-CSIC) and José Castro (IEO) on observed climate impacts in fisheries research ongoing in the CLIFISH project.
