FIMAR 2018

As usual, EOMAR attended this year to the FIMAR, with a stand shared with the different groups at the ECOAQUA institute. We presented different activities related to the research performed in the group, showing zooplankton and phytoplankton organisms, as well as Aurelia aurita polyps and microplastic samples. On the other hand, our colleagues Daniel Bondyale, Vanesa Romero and Jorge Rapp gave a talk speaking about our works in jellyfish and microplastic pollution.

Conference on natural biodegradable products and discussion about climate change of MAPAMA (Ministerio de Agricultura y Pesca, Alimentación y Medio Ambiente)

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. As final conclusions, the need to take care of the ecosystems and bet on biological and biodegradable materials was highlighted, in order to mitigate the pollution of the oceans.
