Marine Adaptation Guidance & Climate Change InformationTool/Resource
Date added: 27/11/2018
Information resources on climate change impacts on the marine environment and guidance on how to adapt.
Our marine ecosystems – from plankton through to fish, mammals and seabirds – are already being affected by climate change alongside other pressures, particularly fishing. Changes will continue, with rising temperatures likely to change species and their distributions. The changes will present both threats and opportunities to our commercial fisheries and aquaculture.
You can learn more about what climate change means for our marine environment and what adaptation actions can be taken, through the following resources:
- A description of past ocean climate change in Scotland
- Summary of future ocean climate change in Scotland
- Marine Conservation feature management guidance
- Marine Industry Adaptation Guidance, including:
