We will develop an ecosystem forecast system based on different ecosystem models of various complexity and using the outcomes of WP8 to assess the predictability of relevant marine ecosystems and fisheries and provide predictions from seasonal to multi-decadal timescales. Three E2E ecosystem models (Section 1.3a) will be implemented for the three case studies. We will drive these models with climate and biogeochemical data provided by WP8 to produce multi-model marine ecosystems and fisheries predictions and scenarios from seasons to decades, and from sub-regional to basin scales, that will be delivered to CT4.
