vulnerability FRAMEWORK will allow estimates an index for individual species (biological vulnerability) and consequently the socio-economic vulnerability of fishing sectors to climatic change in different areas of the Portuguese coasts (North, Centre and South- different oceanographic/climate regimes). Such vulnerability process required: i) describe the projected climate-driven changes that are relevant to Portuguese marine key fisheries/species; ii) assess the potential impacts of climate change on key fisheries and species in Portuguese coast; iii) assess current management to identify approaches that are adaptive to potential climate change scenarios.
