Nereus in the News – Friday, January 6

A Nereus Program study published in Science just before the winter holidays found that meeting the Paris Agreement global warming target of 1.5°C will have large benefits to fisheries. For every degree Celsius decrease in global warming, potential fish catches could increase by more than three million tonnes per year. This study received considerable media attention around the world, including in many different languages.
