The AZTI technology center has led an international study that has concluded that, in all scenarios, by 2050, the tuna stocks analyzed will notice an average decrease in productivity of 36% and a decrease in size of 15%, due to the effect of climate change, so the demand, price and profits of this fishery will also be affected.
This study tries to determine how the combined effect of climate change and fishing pressure may impact the productivity and size of the main commercial species of tuna and swordfish in the future.
A team of professionals in the field of research and modeling from Europe and Canada has participated in the study that has been published in the prestigious journal Global Planetary Change.
