Marine and coastal pollution prevention

Within the framework of the MARCET Project, we have contributed to the study of the state of the research concerning the ecosystem approximation of the main populations of cetaceans of the Macaronesia and its correlation with the environmental state, deepening in parameters with high correlation potential (noise pollution, hydrocarbons, microplastics and persistent organic pollutants (POPs)) and providing new indicators of interest for conducting retrospective studies on samples from the banks of tissues.

With the development of the NAUTICOM Project, we are working with different marinas of the Macaronesia promoting measures of energy efficiency and sustainability as well as initiatives that allow the improvement of the environmental management in their activities.
