Atlantic ecosystems 

  • Biodiversity Hotspots in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean

    Birds, fish and mammals thrive in the South Brazil Bight. This richness is closely linked to ocean currents and river run-off. When the physical environment changes, ecosystems and fishing grounds could also change.

    Read about three identified areas of rich marine life, climate change impacts, ecosystem health and spawning grounds:

  • Key Ecosystems in the South and Tropical Atlantic Ocean

    Around the Atlantic Ocean nations rely heavily on fishing and other coastal activities. Even minor changes in the environment may affect the catch.

    Read about ocean systems and key fishing areas in the Northeast Brazil, and the Canary and Southern Benguela upwelling regions off the west coast of Africa:

  • Tuna Migration in the South and Tropical Atlantic Ocean

    Tuna roam the big ocean, responding to currents and temperature changes in the water.

    Minor changes in environment may affect tuna catches. Read about how sea temperatures and ocean circulations influences fisheries:

Techniques in observations and modeling

  • From models to life. 

    Combining climate models and ecosystem models makes it possible to predict how life in the ocean will develop in the future.

    Read about how to model ecosystems in the ocean and climate variations, and how to combine climate and ecosystem models!

  • Emerging technologies for biological observation in the Atlantic

    This is the situation: The Tropical and Southern Atlantic Ocean is much less observed than the North Atlantic. There is lack of observation and knowledge of the vast South Atlantic, impeding efficient conservation and sustainable furnishing of ecosystems services.

    Read about how new technology can help biological oceanography in advancing knowledge of the ocean ecosystems.

  • Shiny4Selfreport fisheries app

    – a free self-reporting app for the management of fisheries

    The tool is designed to be simple and adaptable, aimed to fill gaps in the management of fisheries in developing countries.
