This project aimed at understanding and predicting thepopulation dynamics of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) in Greenlandic watersin response to climate change. This was achieved through biological, chemicaland genetic analysis of unique cod otolith collections, generating historicaltime series on growth, food composition and genetic population structure.Relationships between environmental changes and the historical distribution,size and growth of individual cod populations was elucidated and used topredict their dynamics under different climate scenarios. The project generatedfundamental insights, but also contributed significantly to proactivemanagement of cod in Greenland.
The project was coordinated by DTU Aqua.
The project was funded by the Greenland Climate Research Centre.
