My last post described how both the UK (Cefas) and France (Ifremer) have been tagging sea bass with electronic data storage tags (DSTs). We’re doing this to learn about their behaviour and migration patterns.
Alternative metrics reveal the Cefas research that has received the most online attention during the past year.
Cefas, working in partnership with the Kuwait Environment Public Authority (KEPA), has just completed an extensive monitoring programme to assess the impact of sewage and industrial effluent discharged into Kuwait’s marine environment.
In a series of blog posts we will be showcasing some of the science recently published by Cefas scientists.
Mortalities in populations of edible cockles (Cerastoderma edule) have been reported across Europe in the past two decades from Spain, Portugal, France, Sweden and the Wadden Sea. Why are they happening?
The Pacific oyster is a popular aquaculture species, and I'm monitoring its distribution in Southampton and Poole.
Intertidal areas, such as estuaries, can be both important fisheries and key habitats for wildlife. During winter months, large flocks of wading birds (Order: Charadriiformes) gather to feed within estuaries.
Marine non-indigenous species (NIS) impact wild and farmed shellfish, as they are species which have been introduced into locations outside their natural range.
It was January and therefore traditionally the time for a survey of fish stocks around the island of South Georgia, in the Southern Ocean.
Since our last post, our scientists have been busy with outreach activity. On 24 February, our “All about that bass” presentation was delivered to a packed house of fishers and other stakeholders at the Seafood Cornwall Training Hub in Newlyn.
