Consortium on regional climatology and adaptation to climate change

Agriculture, commercial fisheries and aquaculture

  • Issues
  • Objectives
  • Research project

Issues

Agriculture

  • Plant production: protection against current and emerging pests (insects, diseases, weeds); crop productivity and harvest quality
  • Livestock: quantity and quality of animal feed; managing the impacts of climate variations, including thermal stress on farms; diseases and infections (new and existing) affecting the productivity of animals and public health
  • The evolution of agricultural land occupation and the related social, economic and environmental consequences
  • Maintaining the quality of agricultural soils
  • Water availability and maintaining/improving water quality for agricultural enterprises and other users

Commercial fisheries and aquaculture

  • Current and emerging organisms and microorganisms in Québec likely to
    harm exploited species and aquaculture
  • Distribution and abundance of exploited species and the forage species on which they depend
  • Aquacultural productivity

Objectives

Support, through collaborative research and development, adaptation to climate change in agriculture, commercial fisheries and aquaculture in Québec.

  • To deepen and increase knowledge about the impacts of climate change and about the vulnerabilities of production sectors and regions
  • Contribute to the definition and analysis of adaptation measures and develop tools to support adaptation
  • Share the knowledge and tools developed through this program among other research teams and users.
