SPACC Description


The goal of the GLOBEC Small Pelagic Fish and Climate Change (SPACC) programme is to understand and predict climate-induced changes in the fish production of marine ecosystems. In addition to having broad economic and ecologic importance, this goal is especially pertinent today because of the expected changes in the earth climate over the next hundred years and their impact on the oceans and marine life.


The work of SPACC is organised under 4 themes:

  • Long-term changes in ecosystems: retrospective analyses
  • Comparative population dynamics
  • Reproductive habitat dynamics
  • Economic implications of climate change
