Main
achievements

The acquisition of 3 gliders was carried out, which will allow automatic monitoring in near real time of the project areas. This will make it possible to obtain oceanographic information on parameters such as temperature, salinity, oxygen and chlorophyll, among others, which will make it possible to develop scenarios of vulnerability and impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems and their fishery resources.

A knowledge management strategy has been developed for the project, which is linked to the sectoral promotion of fisheries and aquaculture in the face of climate change, aligned with the NDCs.
