FutureMARES' work is organised in 39 Storylines that focus on different regions, ecosystems, and climate change impacts in European and CELAC marine waters. These Storylines are basically case studies with different parameters under study. In the North Sea, for example, our partner NIVA researches the inter-relationships among kelp, sea urchins and cod. In the Mediterranean Sea, our colleagues from CSIC investigate the restoration of seagrass (Posidonia oceanica) around the Balearic Islands. And in Belize, the project focuses on sustainable seafood harvesting.
Our Storylines fall into three categories:
NBS1 - Effective Restoration
NBS2 - Effective Conservation
NIH - Nature-Inclusive Harvesting
While some cases focus only on one of these categories, others combine all three.

Each of our Storylines is described in more detail in a respective document. These documents focus on i) the background and regional context of the Storyline, ii) projected climate change impacts in the region, iii) the FutureMARES Scenarios describing future society and economy, iv) research gaps we identified in the region, and v) the work FutureMARES is undertaking to close these gaps.
From today on, the Storyline documents are available for download here on the website as PDF files. Download your region's document to find out more about our work and whom to contact if you have questions or input for us!
