Climate-related impacts on the growth of fish and distribution of fish stocks is an important issue for Scottish fisheries. FIS commissioned a 5-day international workshop with global experts, plus a public event with talks from fishermen, to explore what we know now, and what we quickly need to understand, to help Scottish fishing businesses adapt to climate change.
The discussions resulted in a range of general insights about climate impacts on fish distribution and growth, including how the fishing industry will need to adapt. Want to see more?
