Project ID 514RAF2006

This project aims at furthering the scientific knowledge and capacity basis in the CCLME by adding a focus on the effects of multiple ocean stressors to the knowledge base of the Canary Current system. This new focus will include a collaborative approach to the question of invasive alien species (IAS), its connection with other ocean stressors, and an assessment for the region. The project will facilitate the creation of an IAS group of experts and will provide improved access to scientific data, information and knowledge produced. The project will contribute to science-based management of the CCLME by facilitating the co-design of a collaborative action in the context of the Ocean Decade.
