A etapa da Volta a Portugal de hoje termina em Albufeira, onde o CCMAR vai marcar presença, mostrando um pouco da sua atividade científica na área do mapeamento marinho e projetos mais recentes no combate aos microplásticos.
Records of tropical and sub-tropical species in the Portuguese Southwest coast points to a poleward shift in species distribution.
Our Doctor Vânia Baptista concluded her thesis, on the 30th of October, about the Influence of oceanography and larvae behavior on the recruitment of temperate fishes.
Vânia Baptista recently finished her PhD and as now joined the ECOREACH group to work in the LuandaWaterFront project. Congratulations!
Our researchers Alexandra Teodósio and Vânia Baptista participated in a study that was recently published in Scientific Reports.
Our researchers tested if fish larvae show some individuality throughout their growth.
The study demonstrated the relevance of combining fish larvae behaviour and oceanography processes in modelling the dispersion of fish larvae to estimate recruitment.
Portuguese consumers are willing to include weakfish, an invasive species, on their grocery list.
In this new position, Vânia will determine the main drivers that guide fish larvae to nursery habitats and she is also the Principal Investigator of the LittleFish project.
On this trip, our researchers presented the LittleFish-STP project which aims to study the little fish and capacitate local communities, fishermen and government about the management of this and other threatened fish species.
During the conference week, our researchers participated in several events that highlighted the importance of preserving and conserving the oceans and marine life.
