On September 23 to 27th 2019, in the National Marine Park of Zakynthos (Greece) will take place a summer school “Design and implement monitoring activities to assess Marine Protected Areas ecological and fisheries effectiveness: improving MPA’s manager skills”, as part of the FishMPABlue 2 project.

 

The goal of the summer school is to increase MPAs’ staff’s skills on how to design and implement monitoring activities to assess Marine Protected Areas ecological and fisheries effectiveness. Specifically, participants will be trained on the use of methodologies and techniques of environmental (underwater visual census, baited underwater videos), economic (assessment of catches and their economic value) and social (questionnaires) monitoring aspects of small scale fisheries in MPAs.

 

The ECOSEAS laboratory will take part in this event as an expert on the methods used to monitor small scale fisheries.

Le laboratoire ECOSEAS a participé au Village des Sciences des Championnats du Monde d'Apnée (AIDA 2019) qui ont eu lieu du 6 au 15 septembre à Villefranche-sur-mer (plage des marinières).

Les chercheurs et ingénieurs du laboratoire ont accueilli, sur le stand, des groupes de scolaires mais aussi le grand public pour leur faire découvrir l'environnement marin à travers des posters, des jeux et un grand aquarium. Ils leur ont présenté plus particulièrement leurs travaux sur les aires marines protégées, la pollution sonore en Méditerranée... et certaines espèces (réglementées ou d'intérêt patrimonial, commercial ou ludique).

Plusieurs membres et collaborateurs du laboratoire ECOSEAS étaient présents :
Prof. Paolo Guidetti, Directeur du laboratoire ECOSEAS
Eugenio Di Franco (doctorant)
Benoit Derijard (CR CNRS)
