As part of the ICES/GLOBEC programme on Cod and Climate Change (CCC), a Workshop on Cod and Future Climate Change (WKCFCC) was held between 17 and 20 June 2008 in Copenhagen (ICES, 2008a). The objective was to develop projections for the likely dynamics of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) over the next 20 – 50 years
based on (i) regional climate scenarios that included anthropogenic climate change, and (ii) knowledge of the impact of climate on cod and other species gained during
the CCC programme. The projections would consider not only the direct climate effects on cod, but also possible indirect climate effects resulting from changes in the prey (including zooplankton), predators, and competitors of cod.
