On November 23rd, an environmental awareness day was held at the CN Metropole facilities (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) in which we participated.

We set up our stand focused on microplastics and our colleague Eugenio Raymond gave a short talk with the results we have obtained.

 

From 19th to 23rd of November, EOMAR participated in MICRO2018 International Conference: Fate and Impact of Microplastics: Knowledge, Actions and  Solutions, celebrated in Lanzarote, Canary Island.  

Comunications presented:

On the days 12 and 14 of November, members of EOMAR participated in a national oceanographic conference in Tenerife, presenting their works about microplastics.

 During last week (20th-22th June) EOMAR members participated in the VI International Symposium on Marine Science in Vigo (Spain). Works presented in this conference:

- Alicia Herrera (oral presentation): "The Canary Islands:  A hot spot of microplastic pollution"

As usual, EOMAR attended this year to the FIMAR, with a stand shared with the different groups at the ECOAQUA institute.

From February to March 2018, we traveled across the west coast of USA, with the aim of “put in us on the map” making our investigations known and negotiate future collaborations (postdoctoral positions, brief internships for our students …).

For one week (12-16 March 2018), May Gómez, Alicia Herrera and Ico Martínez presented their results about the research in microplastic marine pollution.

During the week between 11 and 16 of February, EOMAR members participated in the 2018 Ocean Science Meeting with the following works:

May Gómez (poster): The R/ETS ratio: What does it tell us?

Theodore T. Packard (poster): Heterotrophic energy production in the Ocean

Our research group is going to the United States for the next two months, where we will attend the Ocean Science Meeting in Portland (Oregon) from February 11 to 16. We will be moderators of the special session entitled: "Advances in Aquatic Respiration".

We received an invitation to participate in a conference organized by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Food and Environment, (MAPAMA), where they were very interested in our results, already published, on pollution by microplastics in waters of the Canary Islands.
