Our group participated intensively at the Small Pelagic Fish ICES/PICES conference in Lisbon. We participating giving a keynote, an invited talk, several regular talks and presented various posters. The conference was exciting and was great to meet in person several friends and colleagues. Looking forward to future events!
The new project MarinePlan just started. Three 3 exciting years are waiting for us! The main aim is to develop improved transdisciplinary science for effective ecosystem-based maritime spatial planning and conservation in European Seas.
The new project Ges4Seas just started. We have 4 exciting years in front of us! Coastal and marine waters are vital for the natural balance of our planet and for Human societies. All coastal and marine ecosystem goods and services heavily depend on the level of human and environmental pressures, and their cumulative effects. GES4SEAS […]
We started our new research project SEINE-ETP “Assessment of potential interactions between the purse SEINErs fishery of Castellón and Endangered, Threatened, Protected species” with some field work in the purse seine fleet.
The first meeting of the Spanish project ProOceans was organized in San Pedro del Pinatar (in Murcia), in front of the fascinating Mar Menor. We reviewed the first activities of the project and came up with a good plan for the second year. Many interesting studies will come up!
From the 16th to the 20th of May 2022 the first author meeting of the Nexus Assessment, the thematic assessment of the interlinkages among biodiversity, water, food and health (nexus assessments) of IPBES (Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, https://ipbes.net/), was held in Frankfurt, Germany. More than 150 leading international experts, from every […]
Under our Spanish Project ProOceans “Fostering the capacity of marine ecosystem models to PROject the cumulative effects of global change and plausible future OCEANS” we have organized a 2-day workshop to discuss modelling techniques available, their capabilities and challenges to model the global ocean. We have discussed about marine ecosystem models, spatial statistical models, Bayesian/Frequentist […]
We organized a joint lab meeting with Villy Christensen group at University of British Columbia, Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries. We discussed students and postdoc projects and found common challenges and issues to deal with ecological modelling techniques. A very inspiring session! Let’s hope that next time it can be an “in person” meeting.
Our Spanish project ProOceans “Fostering the capacity of marine ecosystem models to PROject the cumulative effects of global change and plausible future OCEANS” starts with a kickoff meeting with all partners. We have three very interesting years ahead of us to learn about MEMs, statistical models and how to improve our capacity to project changes […]
We presented the results of 4 years of projects on small pelagic fish at the first SIMERPE – Iberian Symposium on Modeling and Assessment of Fishery Resources (“Simposio Ibérico de Modelado y Evaluación de Recursos Pesqueros”) We are very grateful for this opportunity, full of interesting discussions about achievements and challenges to evaluate marine resources […]
