Summary

Any change in marine ecosystems has effect on users of marine bioresources, primarily in marine fisheries. The impact of climate change on the marine fisheries sector is complex and the effects can be both positive and negative in economic terms. Changes include the entire marine environment, the change in the migration patterns of fish in open waters, potential changes in the growing season and the time required for fish farming, as well as a potential increase in the number of invasive species. This has led to an increased number of new fish species caught, but also to the endangerment of fish and other produce. Numerous new species of fish have been recorded in the Adriatic Sea in the past thirty years. This paper presents the actual and potential socio-economic impacts of some new species in the Croatian Adriatic ichthyofauna on Croatian marine fisheries.
