DiadES aims to assess and enhance ecosystem services provided by diadromous ﬁsh in the Atlantic Area, and in parallel, the conservation status of these species, by explicitly considering in their management expected impacts of climate change on their distributions.
Diadromous ﬁsh (shads, lampreys, eel, salmon, trout & mullet) are migratory, moving between fresh and marine waters. Through their journey, diadromous ﬁsh provide ecosystem services (e.g. income, food, recreation) to local communities but few quantitative estimates exist. These services could be threatened by climate change due to spatial reallocation of ﬁsh and related beneﬁts.
